Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
As long as it is factually correct, ie what you are saying is true then it won't be harassment
If you were for example, saying he was a thief, this would be a different matter
But if what you are saying is true, then you can not be pursued for this.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
I received an opinion that if I did not accuse him of anything falsely I did not harass him; however there was no reference to the IRELAND STATUTE on harassment - I wrote that I had read and found no reference to harassment in a private e-mail; however l but law is complex as we know. An opinion of a solicitor /barrister carries no weight, especially as he cited a solicitor and the Gardai- Irish State police- to threaten me.
10. (1) Any person who, without lawful authority or reasonable excuse, by any means including by use of the telephone, harasses another by persistently following, watching, pestering, besetting or communicating with him or her, shall be guilty of an offence.
So no, this is not haraassment
Does that help?
That I read that in the actual law - wondered how my clergyman could invoke legal and police authority to threaten me with harassment. Thank you.
Unlikely. The Police will investigate as they will have a duty to do so
But they are unlikely to take action based on what you have said
Does that clarify?
