Dear Sir/Madam,

Re: Complaint Against Solicitor Jason McCue

It has been brought to my attention that a number of documents are in general circulation regarding a member of the Law Society.

These documents purport to represent a police officer making an internal intelligence memo, in these documents it is clear the officer is making note of information received from a source, I now know to be Jason McCue, solicitor.

What is of concern to myself is that this intelligence was derived with what can only be with the explicit agreement of Jason McCue, or at the very least with the cognitive knowledge that the officer would be duty bound to report this information back to the intelligence machinery of the RUC/PSNI.

The information that was departed to the officer, was not evidence of a serious crime or an act of criminality, but contained information of a security package provided by a leading national newspaper group.

This security package was granted to assist my swift exit from the United Kingdom after I had given evidence in legal proceedings, in which one individual giving evidence had already been murdered.

But what causes further concern is that I was pivotal to Police Ombudsman's Investigation into the Omagh bombing, as a result of which I have safety and security fears from both serving and retired police officers who would wish to cause me harm or loss of life.

As a result of my being Whistleblower, in exposing the wrong doings of the state and the RUC/PSNI.

And the very fact that I had a confidentiality agreement with the national newspaper which Jason McCue was directly involved in both the drafting and the signing of the this agreement.

I diligently adhered to both the terms and the spirit of this confidentiality agreement, and I'm absolutely disgusted that a serving and registered solicitor can breach confidence with such a devastating effect.

As a result of this information being provided to the RUC/PSNI I was unable to return to my place of security which quite clearly was comprised and would likely place me at risk from attack from rogue elements of the police and or republican terrorists and or the agents.

My bolthole was also my only source of income, and my investment amounting to tens of thousands of pounds has been lost, along with a substantial income which should have been derived from my hospitality business.

He not only breached the said agreement, he discussed the matter with a third party without the contractual parties consent, knowing full well that to do so would be a breach of confidence.

It should also be noted that during the course of my signing this confidentiality, there was a clause which gave me the right to seek independent legal advice, when I raised this issue with Jason McCue.

He refused to forward the material to a solicitor that I was instructing, which I believe would be a conflict of interest, due to the fact that McCue was acting for and on behalf of the national newspaper and was both acting on my behalf by way of giving advice before during after I signed the confidentiality agreement, he also insisted that he retain copies of my agreement in his office for safe keeping.

I now require to know what the Law Society is going to do about investigating this matter.

How can anyone have confidence in the legal profession when confidentiality agreements are divulged to a third party without the knowledge or agreement of the contractual parties concerned, and that such a breach was caused by a solicitor.

Yours sincerely
