British government once again denies justice to Finucane family - Molloy
Sinn Féin's Mid Ulster general election candidate and outgoing MP, Francie Molloy, has sharply condemned the British government for once again delaying justice for the family of murdered human rights solicitor Pat Finucane.British Secretary of State, Julian Smith, today refused to meet Geraldine Finucane, Pat's widow, in what Molloy described as another unacceptable obstacle in the way of truth and justice.Francie Molloy said:
"Today's decision by Julian Smith to delay meeting Geraldine Finucane until after the general election is the latest in a long line of excuses used to deny the family the truth and justice they deserve."The British Supreme Court ruled nine months ago that the Finucane family had been denied investigation and a public inquiry that satisfied human rights standards."The British government must immediately fulfil its obligation to hold a public inquiry into the killing of Pat Finucane without any further delay."
