Subject: Additional information sought

Dear Stiofan,
I plan to formally write to my local law firm (Fair Murtagh) again soon regarding the criminally libellous e-mail (as I see it) which Ciaran MacLochlainn wrote about me on April 5th last - which is further referred to below.
If you have any additional information to add to what Colm has sent me earlier today (please see below), I would very much appreciate it please.
As you can see below, your name has been mentioned to me by Donal O'Bearra (Green Party Representative for the Galway area).
At this stage, I now feel I have to point out that the Green Party leadership appears to me to be trivialising this whole matter in a manner which is a source of growing concern for me. 
I would like to stress that the matter of Ciaran Mac Lochlainn's libellous e-mail is most certainly NOT trivial to me. 
I live in a community which has been under threat for several years now of being saddled with two huge rubbish dumps being located within a few miles of each other, and that is by no means our only local environmental problem. The situation is just as bad, if not worse, regarding the protection of some very important local heritage sites.
Neither would the whole matter be trivial (I imagine ?) to Celtic Waste / Greenstar - who are planning to install one of the two rubbish dumps in question very soon.  Similarly with regard to the Bank of Ireland - who, as leader of an international group of banks, raised 100,000,000 Euros for Celtic Waste last year.  
It may also be worth adding that there is a Bord Pleanala appeal decision due out on or before May 13th 2004 regarding the local Celtic Waste dump referred to above; and, that one of the things An Board Pleanala need to take account of is the matter of the alleged 50,000 EURO Celtic Waste bribe Trevor Sargent TD has already raised in the Dail with Minister Cullen TD. 
Though the 50,000 EURO bribe was reported by me to the Police (by registered letter on March 31st 2004), I do not know if they are investigating it or not. To date, I have not received any reply from them.  Further information on this particular aspect of this very disturbing overall situation can be found at: http://www.finnachta.com/PoliceLetter31March2004.htm
I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience please.
Billy Finnerty.

Like many people in the party I have a number of responsibilities.  My involvement in this matter is in my role on the Rules and Procedures Subcommittee which is a subcommittee of the National Executive Committee.
I don't see that I have any role in accusations of libel.
As far as I am aware Ciaran MacLochlainn is still secretary of the East Galway
Green Party.

Dear Colm,

For legal reasons, and with reference to Donal O'Bearra's e-mail below (Sent: Monday, May 03, 2004 10:13 PM), I would be very grateful if you could let me have answers to the following three questions please:

a) What exactly was your pronouncement from the point of view of the Green Party's "Rules & Procedures" regarding what I see as the criminally libellous e-mail Ciaran Mac Lochlainn published concerning me on April 5th last?  (Please note that I was not aware until now - i.e. until I received the e-mail referred to in the paragraph above - of the existence of any such pronouncement from you, or from anyone else, in the Green Party.)

b) What exactly is your job title, and your position in the Green Party?

c) Is Ciaran Mac Lochlainn still Secretary of the East Galway Green Party? (As you will know, and for the reasons highlighted at the following Internet address, I believe Ciaran Mac Lochlainn should have been suspended immediately from his East Galway Green Party Secretary's position once senior members of the Green Party had been informed regarding his libellous e-mail of April 5th: http://www.finnachta.com/libel.htm )

I look forward to receiving answers to the above 3 questions at your earliest convenience please.

Kind regards,

Billy Finnerty.

PS: I will take this opportunity to point out that the registered letter to Trevor Sargent (regarding the April 5th 2004 libellous e-mail) was sent last Friday, and that the text, plus a digital copy of the Post Office registered receipt, can now be seen at the following address: http://www.finnachta.com/DeputyTrevorSargentTD.htm

Dear Billy,

The next NEC meeting is on June 26th and Colm O'Caomhanaigh has already pronounced on it from the point of view of the Rules & Procedures. I suggest that any further correspondence on the issue be addressed to Stiofan Nutty, General Secretary, 5a Lower Fownes Street, Dublin 2. The chapter is closed as far as my involvement is concerned.

Subject: Rules & Procedures Committee / National Executive Committee

Dear Donal,

I go along with your suggestion about passing on my complaint to the Rules & Procedures Committee of the Green Party and/or the National Executive Committee.

Without wishing to be disrespectful to anyone in the Green Party, and at the risk of being accused of insulting people nonetheless, I believe the above mentioned action should have taken place within 24 hours of my e-mail dated April 6th 2004 (Sent: Tuesday, April 06, 2004 8:28 PM) - the contents of  which can be viewed at the following internet page address:
Please note that the above mentioned e-mail was copied to yourself, to Trevor Sargent (Party Leader), and to Mary White (Deputy Leader).
Allowing for the wholly inappropriate delay in investigating the criminally libellous e-mail (as I see it) published about me by Ciaran Mac Lochlainn on April 5th last, which he copied to several other people, I hope the above Committee/s will now deal with the matter promptly, and that I will be informed of the outcome as soon as possible please.
In case there might be any doubt about it, please be aware that I am still very seriously considering taking legal action against Ciaran Mac Lochlainn, and the Green Party (for libel).  I hope to be receiving further legal advice on the matter later this week.

Kind regards,

Billy Finnerty.
