Dear Mr Finnerty,
Thank you for your email.  I can also confirm that your letter was received.
Unfortunately the Court of Justice is only competent to take cases directly from private individuals in clearly defined situations as outlined in Art.230 EC Treaty.  This means an individual may only bring an action before the Court when they are seeking the annulment of a Decision of the Community which directly and individually (i.e. only that person and no other) concerns them.
However, if you feel that the actions of a Member State, or any law or regulation infringes Community law you could write to the Commission who may then take up your case.
The Commission has a standard form for such complaints. This and further information can be found at: http://europa.eu.int/comm/secretariat_general/sgb/lexcomm/index_en.htm
You can also write directly to the Commission at:
European Commission, 200 rue de la Loi, B-1040 Brussels, Belgium
Telno:  0032 2 299 1111
Or contact the Commission Representation in Ireland:
European House,
Dawson Street,
Dublin 2,
Tel: 353 (01) 662 5113
Fax: 353 (01) 662 5118
If you believe that your rights under European Community law may have been infringed, you could, after taking appropriate professional legal advice in the State concerned, commence proceedings before the appropriate court in that State.  That court, if it considers that a decision on a question of interpretation of the treaties or on the interpretation or validity of other Community legislation is necessary in order to enable it to give a decision, may refer the matter to this Court for a preliminary ruling.
If you believe that you have suffered from maladministration on the part of the European Institutions you can complain to the European Ombudsman. The Ombudsman has a standard form for complaints. This and further information can be found at: http://www.euro-ombudsman.eu.int/home/en/default.htm, or by contacting the Ombudsman:
The European Ombudsman
1 avenue du Président Robert Schuman
B.P. 403
F-67001 Strasbourg Cedex
Tel: +33 3 88 17 23 13
Fax: +33 3 88 17 90 62
Email: euro-ombudsman@europarl.eu.int
Finally if you are able to bring a case before the Court, the rules of the Court do require that all parties be represented by a lawyer. This rule can be found in the 3rd paragraph of Art.19 of the Statute of the Court of Justice. The Statute is available on our website at: http://www.curia.eu.int/en/instit/txtdocfr/txtsenvigueur/statut.pdf
I hope this information is of use to you.

Court of Justice of the European Communities.

Subject: EU Court of Justice information request (EU reference: Petition 809/2001)
Date: Thu, 30 Jan 2003 14:35:12 +0000

January 30th 2003
The Information Service
The European Union Court of Justice
L-2925 Luxembourg.
European Union reference number: Petition 809/2001 (Mr Gemelli).
Dear Sir/Madam,
I am experiencing major problems connected with maladministration which (as I see it) are grossly in breach of  the "right to good administration" principles set out in Item 1, Article 41 of the European Union Charter on Fundamental Rights.
From my viewpoint, the maladministration problems in question are associated with individual people, and with various bodies in the Republic of Ireland, the United Kingdom, and within the European Union administration itself.
I would very much like to have the set of maladministration problems in question examined by the European Union Court of Justice please. However, there is at present a huge obstacle in the way of I doing so: and this has to do with the fact that I am finding it EXTREMELY difficult to find a human-rights lawyer willing to undertake the necessary work on my behalf.
In circumstances where I am finding it impossible to locate a lawyer willing to help me, I now find myself wondering if it would be possible for me to initiate the necessary EU Court of Justice proceedings myself ? - for either the EU Court of Justice, or, for the EU Court of First Instance. (In case there might be any doubt about it, please note that I am not a lawyer.)
Much of the evidence I hold regarding the maladministration problems I have been struggling with for the past FOUR YEARS or so can be seen by following the links on the front pages of the two Internet web site addresses provided at the end of this text. (For technical reasons, the http://www.finnachta.com/ web site is the most up-to-date of the two sites at the present time.)
My last letter on the maladministration subject to Mr Gemelli (Chairman of the European Union Committee on Petitions) was sent to him by registered post on September 7th 2002.  Please note that, to date, I have not received ANY reply from him (or from any of those who were sent copies). A copy of the text of this particular letter to Mr Gemelli, together with five associated Post Office registered letter receipts, can be seen at www page address:
Earlier today I copied the text of this letter to the www page address provided immediately below - which has translation facilities for several European Union languages:
Later today, I intend to send a printed (and signed) copy of this e-mail to you through the post to the following address:
       The Information Service,
          Cour de justice des Communautés européennes,
             L-2925 Luxembourg.
I would be very grateful if you could send your answer to the question I have raised above (in paragraph 4) to both of my following two e-mail addresses please:
wfinnerty@eircom.net  and billyfinnerty1945@hotmail.com
Thanking you in anticipation of your help.
William Patrick Finnerty.
