We strive here at People For Economic Justice to show in an honest light, the blatantly unlawful actions often undertaken by the banking sector. The actions occur during the repossession of homes and businesses from people who are unable to keep up with their mortgage repayments. These people would like nothing more than to keep paying, but are simply unable to do so at the rate that they managed during the economic boom. The following video from TNS Radio, shows just how above and beyond the law these institutions believe themselves to be, in a situation involving popular professional golfer Lee Harrington.
Lee Harrington’s Home
And there you have it. Golfer Lee Harrington returned home one day to find himself evicted from his home. Lee was disconcerted to find his normal key not working, but also the electricity and water having been cut off. The odd part about this issue, which from the outside appeared to be a cut and dry eviction, is that Lee Harrington did not owe a single cent to any bank for this home, having made a very healthy living as caddy to Tiger Woods, and having won the Irish Open himself. Lee is currently in contact with his solicitor to deal with the matter.
This says a great deal about how the banks view themselves. They are so unconcerned about the law that they don’t even feel the need to double-check the address they gave to the Sheriff, when they dispatch him to tear families from their homes on a day-to-day basis. This Sheriff then clearly does not feel the need to double-check that the house in question was even purchased using a loan from that bank. They could in theory just hand out any old address, and have the Sheriff sell it! Not only do they break the constitution, wherein Lee Harrington’s home is stated to be inviolable save as to law, but even if that law did not exist, they are breaking and entering as Lee Harrington did not even have a loan arranged with them to start with.
Vin from TNS Radio took a trip out to 171 Beaumont Road in Dublin today, camera in hand, at the request of Ben Gilroy. Ben arrived at the scene earlier on, to find that the owner of the house had been the victim of a breaking-and-entering. As luck would have it, the owners and their neighbours, whose house happened to be adjoined via hallway connection, had taken it upon themselves previously to install a camera system outside the house. Imagine Ben and the owners surprise to discover that the house had been broken into by a trained Locksmith, under the instructions of someone calling themselves “The Sheriff Of The City Of Dublin“.
In total, six people trespassed on the person’s property.
“The Sheriff Of The City Of Dublin“
What makes this instance even more interesting, is that the owner of 173 Beaumont Road, having owed no money what-so-ever, least of all someone called “The Sheriff Of The City Of Dublin“, had also had their furniture stolen. The 70-year-old in question attempted to alert “The Sheriff Of The City Of Dublin” while he was on the premises before Ben arrived, but the “The Sheriff Of The City Of Dublin” ignored this information and proceeded to steal the woman’s possessions. On top of all this, the owner of 171 Beaumont Road was sent into a cardiac event, and has had to be taken to nearby Beaumont Hospital.
Luckily the “The Sheriff Of The City Of Dublin” and the other thieves did not notice the camera system in another room. This will be of great use in demonstrating the unlawful theft of the woman’s property, as well as the events leading up to the man’s fight for his life in the nearby hospital. Two members of An Garda Síochána have attended the premises and they have stated outright that the contents of the video footage “does not seem right”. This matter will be taken up against “The Sheriff Of The City Of Dublin” in the commercial courts, and an official complaint has been raised with An Garda Síochána.
This week Ben outlines what happened following the viral events of Constitution Halts Sheriff. Ben was informed later on in the week that the Sheriff had returned at an undisclosed time, again with several members of An Garda Siochana in tow. They proceeded to kick down the door, ejected the family from their home, and took possession of the house. While one can see why the so-called Sheriff found this option a lot more manageable than proving why his role is not totally unlawful under the Constitution of Ireland, it does highlight further acts of gross misconduct on the part of both this man, and the Gardai that were with him at the time.
Given that this was an entirely Civil matter, An Garda Siochana had no business what so ever in being there, let alone kicking in the door. As we know, a citizen’s house is totally inviolable save as to law. As this man has broken no law, An Garda Siochana had no right to enter his property without his express permission.
As Ben mentions in this video, there is currently a constitutional challenge against these measures in courts. This is due to the fact that the registrar who writes orders to repossess homes in the circuit courts of Ireland, are almost always in fact the Sheriff who will execute this order. This is totally unlawful, as it allows the registrar to directly profit from the orders he or she writes. This is in a nutshell a lack of separation of powers.
