"Such is the world we live in; such are the governments we live under; and, such are we "the people" who vote such governments into power."

I would agree with you ...

I would agree entirely with you, and as far as I know, there is national and international legislation ("law") -- lots and lots of it I suspect -- to support Articles 9, 10, and 11 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948).

Article 9:

"No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile."

=====

Article 10:

"Everyone is entitled in full equality to a fair and public hearing by an independent and impartial tribunal, in the determination of his rights and obligations and of any criminal charge against him."

=====

Article 11:

"(1) Everyone charged with a penal offence has the right to be presumed innocent until proved guilty according to law in a public trial at which he has had all the guarantees necessary for his defence."

"(2) No one shall be held guilty of any penal offence on account of any act or omission which did not constitute a penal offence, under national or international law, at the time when it was committed. Nor shall a heavier penalty be imposed than the one that was applicable at the time the penal offence was committed."


=====

However, finding a lawyer to use such legislation based on the above UDHR principles, for the purpose of protecting the targets of government crime, is an entirely different matter: a situation which very definitely seems to have not been helped by the murders of Irish human rights lawyers Pat Finucane and Rosemary Nelson : murders which allegedly had significant government support and involvement.

The full text of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which came into being on December 10th 1948, but which possibly as many as 95% (or more perhaps?) of "the people" have never even heard of yet, because of "government educational failures" -- contrived failures as far as I know, which are being very carefully sustained by governments in my particular case -- can be viewed at:

Such is the world we live in, and such are the governments we live under.

And such are we "the people" who vote such governments into power.

Article 5:

"
No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. "

"And, why is it that both Prime Minister Enda Kenny TD and Justice Minister Alan Shatter TD are (as far as I know) completely ignoring the entire existence and contents of the relevant (to the above issues) registered letters I sent to them on December 14th 2012?"

"Scanned copies of both the December 14th 2012 registered letters in question, together with scanned copies of the associated Post Office receipts and delivery notes, can be viewed at the following www location:

The two excerpts just above are from the e-mail dated February 7th 2013 to Mr Ban Ki-moon (Secretary-General of the United Nations), which was copied to several other people using the same e-mail. A copy of the full text of the e-mail in question can be viewed at the following Internet location:
