Public inquiry into Pat Finucane murder gets support at British Irish Parliamentary Assembly‏

25 October, 2011 - by Barry McElduff


Sinn Féin MLA Barry McElduff said that the big story coming from the British Irish Parliamentary Assembly gathering taking place in the Brighton Hotel is the amount of elected representatives from the two islands who called for a full public inquiry into the murder of Pat Finucane.

“The big story coming out of here today is not the non-appearance of British Secretary of State Owen Patterson or the pathetic comments by Jim Wells regarding the Irish Language.

“The main story is that speakers were queuing up to support a public inquiry into the murder of Pat Finucane and this dominated the questions and statement’s that followed the contribution by the British government’s leader of the House of Lords David Shutt.

“There is a range of issues discussed at these meetings that affect the people of the two islands but the Finucane family can take heart that their plight for justice was well aired and supported among a diverse group of representatives.” CRÍOCH/END
