European Ombudsman's reference: 1569/2006/RM

Dear Mr Monaco,
I was delighted to receive yesterday's e-mail from the Office of the European Ombudsman (reproduced below), which came as a very pleasant surprise for me. 
It is also a huge relief for me to know that, at long last, there is now a strong possibility (as I see it) that the very severe difficulties I have been experiencing for the past several years, at the hands of public officials and bodies, will now be dealt with in a just and responsible manner by the European Ombudsman, and by the Council of Europe / European Court of Human Rights (Application 25077/05) as well I trust: so that the ongoing mental torture I am being put through - for no good reason whatsoever that I know of - will be properly addressed for once and for all I hope, and properly resolved from my viewpoint, and from the viewpoint of all decent and right-minded European citizens.  
In response to your request for a postal address for me, please use the following one:
St Albans
New Inn
County Galway
Republic of Ireland
Please note though that as there is an extant warrant for my arrest in the Republic of Ireland, that I cannot sensibly attempt to collect mail from the above address myself at the present time; and, that although I do have close relatives living near my home (in New Inn village) who can forward mail to me, there are certain doubts and uncertainties relating to the way I receive such mail at the hostel I am staying at in Northern Ireland at the present time - as described under "Point 3" of my letter to the Northern Ireland Housing Executive at the following address: . Consequently, I believe it would help if you could please ensure that I am informed by e-mail about any correspondence you need to send to my permanent address in the Republic of Ireland, so that I can keep a special watch out for it.
I have quickly looked today through the "What can the European Ombudsman do for you?" guide at your location; and, I note with great interest that, in connection with the subject of maladministration, there is clear mention of such things as "unnecessary delay" and the "abuse of power" by public bodies (on Page 7 of the guide) - matters which feature strongly in the case I have already put to the European Court of Human Rights in my application to the Council of Europe dated March 25th 2006, and which is now on view at .  
I also notice, on Page 8 of the guide, that the European Ombudsman investigates complaints against The European Commission.  With this in mind, it would be much appreciated if you could please take very careful note of the fact that I have never received any reply at all from European Commission President Barosso to the letter I sent to him through the registered post on May 31st 2005 in connection with the 'infringement procedure' described at .  A copy of the letter in question, together with scanned copies of the Royal Mail registered Post Office receipt associated with it, can be viewed at: 
In connection with the statement on Page 9 of the guide, regarding the European Ombudsman's decision as to whether or not to "open an enquiry" into my complaint, I anticipate that I will be hearing from you regarding this matter "within one month" from now. 
Should you require any further information from me regarding any aspect of the "public official / public bodies" difficulties I am experiencing, please do not hesitate to contact me (preferably by e-mail please).
For future reference purposes, please note that I intend to place a copy of this e-mail at the following address later today: 
Yours sincerely,
William Finnerty.

Subject: Minister for Justice Michael McDowell TD and the Director for Public Prosecutions Mr James Hamilton

I wish as many people as possible to know that Minister for Justice Michael McDowell TD, together with the Director for Public Prosecutions, Mr James Hamilton, are playing the lead roles in the ongoing human rights abuse and bulling referred to in last Tuesday's e-mail text, reproduced below, to the BullyOnLine Yahoo Group (which has been copied to the European Court of Human Rights); and, that despite numerous attempts by senior social worker Mr Gerard Madden (based in Northern Ireland) to get a response from him, Minister McDowell continues to completely ignore the letter sent to him at the following address (dated November 7th 2005):
Put simply, it appears that neither Minister for Justice McDowell TD, nor the Director for Public Prosecutions Mr James Hamilton, have any regard whatsoever for human rights law as far as my particular case is concerned; and, that they are still being allowed to blatantly and unlawfully carry on violating human rights law in my particular case even though the Council of Europe and the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg have been informed about my situation on several occasions during the past few years.

Subject: [bullyonline] "We need a major case to test Human Rights and Bullying"
Dear BullOnLine Members,
I very much agree with the following recent statement from Pierre-Joseph Proudhon:
"We need a major case to test Human Rights and Bullying" (BullyOnLine Message 62429, of May 23rd 2006).
I believe I actually have just such a case, which is well documented, and which involves a long string of very serious "human rights law" and bullying type abuses; and, I have actually sent a formal application to the European Court of Human Rights (Council of Europe) through the registered post on March 25th 2006 in connection with this case.
However, and to my great and growing dismay, I have received no reply of any kind at all from the Registrar at the European Court of Human Rights (to date) regarding his/her receipt of the set of application documents in question.
I have also sent an e-mail reminder to the Registrar of the European Court of Human Rights on April 28th 2006, plus a printed and signed copy of the e-mail in question through the normal post using the UK Royal Mail "Airsure" service (which I also sent on April 28th 2006).
Though the Royal Mail "Track and Trace" Internet service clearly indicates that my "reminder" Airsure letter was successfully "delivered in FRANCE before 10:22 on May 9th 2006" (as anyone can verify by entering the particular Royal Mail Airsure letter reference number LY225605312GB at ), I have still heard nothing at all in return from the Registrar of the European Court of Human Rights regarding the safe receipt of my "March 25th 2006 Application".
Needless to say, I am now growing very, very concerned regarding the mysterious and disturbing "wall of silence" I am being deliberately presented with (apparently?) by European Court of Human Rights and the Council of Europe regarding my March 25th 2006 Application - particularly when it is the case that I can very easily be contacted by e-mail (at the address I am using for this e-mail).
Detailed information relating to the application I made to the European Court of Human Rights on March 26th 2006, including a scanned copy of the Royal Mail "Priority Handling and Registered Delivery" receipt I used on that date, can be viewed at the following address: 
Please note that the "Application Documents" on view at the address just above involve very severe psychological bullying over a period of several years - at the hands of public officials and bodies - and that they contain written evidence from my GP (Dr McCavert), and from a senior social worker (Mr Gerard Madden), which supports this claim. One of the "To Whom It May Concern" letters I have submitted from my GP, for example, very clearly points out that I have ended up with "PTSD Complex": as a direct result of all the trauma and abuse I have been subjected to (since around 1998). A scanned copy of this particular letter can be viewed at: 
I am now wondering if anyone at the "BullyOnLine" Yahoo site might have any suggestions as to where I should try to go from here - with regard to my particular case (i.e. European Court of Human Rights "Application Number: 25077/05" now on display at the address two paragraphs up) ???  
I feel completely stuck at the present time. 
Please note that the legal abuse I am being subjected to is so severe that I cannot even find a lawyer who is willing to advise me, let alone take on my case.
William Finnerty.
