Finucane Inquiry crucial element to Leeds talks

14 September, 2004


Sinn Féin Chief Negotiator Martin McGuinness has said that the inquiry into the killing of Pat Finucane is a crucial issue which Sinn Fein will again be raising with the British government at Leeds Castle this week.

Mr McGuinness said:

"The guilty plea of Ken Barrett has removed the bogus argument that the British government have been using to prevent a full independent inquiry into the murder of Pat Finucane.

"Collusion, including the killing of Pat Finucane, are serious matters which the British government must deal with. Continuing denial and cover-up is unacceptable.

"Collusion and the Pat Finucane Inquiry will be a key issue for Sinn Fein in the Leeds Castle discussions this week." ENDS
