Kelly - Time for full independent judicial inquiry into killing of Pat Finucane

2 September, 2003


Sinn Féin Justice spokesperson, North Belast representative Gerry Kelly, commenting on the meeting between the Finucane family and Irish Taoiseach Bertie Ahern said:

"The identies of those involved in the killing of Pat Finucane are well known. The fact that agencies of the British state used the UDA to carry out this killing is beyond doubt. What is required now is a full independent judicial inquiry to establish exactly who authorised and planned this killing - where the chain of command leads to.

"We are long past the time when the British government can continue to evade its responsibility. There can be no more excuses, no more barriers put in the path of the Finucane families demand for justice.

"Sinn Féin wlll continue to highlight this issue and will continue to support the Finucane family and others in their demand for full disclosure and for the lid to be lifted on the scandal of state collusion."ENDS
