British prime minister must be pressed to honour commitment to enquiry
Sinn Féin leader, Gerry Adams TD, has welcomed the fact that the Taoiseach discussed the Pat Finucane case with British prime minister, David Cameron in London today.
Yesterday in the Dáil, Deputy Adams had asked the Taoiseach to raise the Dublin-Monaghan bombings, the killing of 11 people in the Ballymurphy massacre of 1971 and the case of murdered human rights lawyer Pat Finucane with the British prime minister.
Speaking today Deputy Adams said: “The British government committed to an agreement with the Irish government, at Weston Park, to have an enquiry into the murder of Pat Finucane, widely suspected to have been a victim of British state collusion.
“By refusing to have the enquiry Mr Cameron is in breach of an intergovernmental agreement. He needs to be pressed relentlessly and forcefully to honour this obligation,” Deputy Adams concluded.
