Alex Maskey attempted murders to be mentioned in de Silva ‘review'

11 December, 2012 - by Alex Maskey


Sinn Féin MLA Alex Maskey said he has been told by Desmond de Silva that loyalist attempts to kill him will be referred to when de Silva releases his ‘review’ into the Pat Finucane murder tomorrow.

The South Belfast MLA said:

 “I don’t expect any new revelations in my case as the British government has continued in their cover-up of collusion on this issue.

“Indeed de Silva never even contacted me during his so-called review other than to tell me he was going to refer to my case.

“I would only be satisfied if the full truth about the level of collusion that took place between the British state and loyalists death squads was to be revealed.

“The British government have obviously tried to gloss over the collusion that took place in the Pat Finucane murder with the de Silva report.

“I support the Finucane family in their demand for a public inquiry into Pat’s murder.

“It is only then the truth of the level of collusion in Pat’s killing and the incidents regarding myself will be revealed.”
