THE SUPREME COURT
|IN THE MATTER OF THE EUROPEAN ARREST WARRANT ACT 2003|
THE MINISTER FOR JUSTICE, EQUALITY
AND LAW REFORM
|Anthony John Hill|
SUBMISSIONS OF THE APPELLANT
The first thing that needs to be clarified is that the Appellant does not submit to any Earthly jurisdiction, and has had to use the terminology “Submissions of the Appellant” because it is the recognized standard form and there is no other way to bring these supremely important matters to the attention of the Irish Nation, officially, on the record, except via their representatives in the Supreme Court of Ireland.
- On 2nd day of April 2009 the High Court (Peart J.) ordered the surrender of the Appellant to the United Kingdom on foot of an European arrest warrant to facilitate his prosecution for an offence described in the warrant as “doing an act tending and intended to pervert the course of justice contrary to common law.”Background
- Two packages each containing DVDs entitled “7/7 Ripple Effect” and featuring widely available video-footage were sent to Kingston Crown Court in Surrey, England. One package containing 5 DVDs (delivered on 13th May 2008) was addressed to the foreman of the Jury and the other containing one DVD (delivered on 10th June 2008) was addressed to the presiding trial Judge. The EAW states that the DVD drew heavily from a BBC Panorama programme entitled “London under Attack” which sought to put London anti-terror plans to test and the thrust of the video is that the UK government and security forces conspired to cause explosions in Central London on 7th July 2005 and the alleged 7/7 bombers were innocent individuals duped into participating in what they thought was a training exercise.
- The packages which were posted in the Republic of Ireland were delivered by standard mail but did not reach the addressees as they were received and “intercepted” by court staff who informed the police. The subsequent police investigation indicated that the handwriting on the DVDs and the envelopes was that of the Appellant. The Affidavit of the arresting Garda Sergeant avers that the Applicant conceded that he had sent the DVDs because he believed the alleged 7/7 bombers were innocent.
