As set out in our latest newsletter, we will be in touch shortly with a general update in relation to the advancement of the Group Litigation, which is progressing rapidly through the Commercial Court.
In the meantime, separate to the litigation but very much relevant to it, we are in the process of preparing a formal complaint to the European Commission against the Irish State.
This will be quite technical in nature and based on the failure of the State to implement certain measures which would have meant that the manufacture of construction products in Ireland was subject to oversight by State Bodies.
As part of the Complaint procedure, we are required to provide the names of individuals who have been affected by the failures on the part of the Irish State, which led to the supply of defective blocks and construction products. We are writing to you now because, as we have always said, ní neart go cur le chéile.
Here, there certainly would be strength in unity and we would like to give you the opportunity to put your name to the Complaint Application.
If you would like to be involved, we have attached a link to a short online form for you to complete with your name and contact details. We appreciate that you have provided this detail in the context of the Group Litigation but would be grateful if you could provide it again separately for the purposes of this complaint.
Finally, there is a box for you to tick consenting to your details being used for the complaint and being disclosed to the authority being complained of i.e. the relevant Irish State authorities.
We are sending this same form to over 2,000 of our clients and hoping that many hundreds of you will join together to support the Complaint.
This is not limited to participants in the litigation so if you would like to share the link with friends and family who would like to sign up, please feel free to do so.
We would very much appreciate your cooperation and unity on this matter.
