We refer to the above.
On DATE OF INCIDENT whilst present at PLACE OF INCIDENT (my mobile phone was seized by members of An Garda Síochana).

Furthermore, I would be obliged if you would set out the lawful basis upon which my property was seized and the basis for its continued retention.
Please acknowledge this correspondence.
