The Shame of Ireland

Dear Director of Public Prosecutions,

I am upset to note that your office have sent out answers to reasons why not to prosecute to a wrong address. The wrong address, I was told was taken off your files over a year ago. I have since had letters in July 2016, April 2017 and 2 May 2017 from your office to my present address.

I was asked to put my address on the form your office sent to me in April 2017 and it is this address in Tullamore. I do not accept your hurried apology that it was an error. Your Lawyer whom I believe is the head of the Communications Section for Victims of Crime would have had that form I filled in in April 2017 which clearly had my Tullamore address which is my only address to date. How the wrong address came to resurface after a year is questionable. Sure if two addresses were coming up on your computer it would have only taken a phone call to check which was the right one, but your office also failed to do this.

I have been told today that a member of staff has now sent me the letter which will take a few days because of the weekend. I asked could your office not have couriered the letter to me which I had been waiting for. I have been told this morning that if I had said that yesterday that it could have been couriered to me today. I have stated that I am worn out having to not only point out mistakes in unfair treatment and to have to advise your office on how to rectify same.

Your letters to victims are marked "Strictly Private and Confidential" yet your office does not ensure that such letters are sent to the named person, no address verification etc.

You are aware that Gardai edited my Statement before sending it to your office. You know that evidence was also left out of that file. Why is there no way for a victim of crime to access justice when Gardai coverup and when the DPP's Office further sets out to spread confidential information. All it takes is for your office to make a quick phone call to verify the address of victims.

Your office is making decisions to "Not Prosecute" even when you are informed that evidence has been removed from files by Gardai and your office is also aware of Novartis bribery and corruption in Ireland. Surely it should be up to your office to raise such concerns on wrongdoing by Gardai.

I confirm I do not accept your apology for such failures of not verifying addresses before you send out Confidential information to victims of crime.

For transparency and perhaps to make other victims of crime aware of the imcompetence in your office on their personal private information I make this statement public.

In such circumstances what chance do I have of your Office doing an Appeal on "No Prosecution"?

Yours faithfully,
