British government must hold full independent public inquiry into murder of Pat Finucane - Dillon

26 September, 2019 - by Linda Dillon


Sinn Féin MLA Linda Dillon has said the British government must fulfil its obligation to hold a full independent public inquiry into the murder of human rights lawyer Pat Finucane.

The Sinn Féin spokesperson on victims said:

“Once again the family of Pat Finucane have been forced to take legal action against the British government over its failures to fully investigate his murder.

“In February the British Supreme Court ruled that previous investigations had been inadequate and the British government’s Secretary of State had agreed to meet with the Finucane family. This meeting has yet to happen.

“The British government must now live up to its commitments and obligations and announce a full independent public inquiry into the killing of Pat Finucane.

“Sinn Féin will continue to stand with the Finucane family in their campaign for truth.”
