Finucane family urges judges to shun murder inquiry


22/03/2006 - 17:52:11

The family of Patrick Finucane made a fresh appeal today to judges around the world not to sit on the public inquiry into the murder of the Belfast solicitor.

The plea came after Taoiseach Bertie Ahern told the Irish Parliament that the British government had begun the search for a judge to chair an inquiry into the murder 17 years ago.

The Finucane family campaigned long and hard for a public inquiry into the murder by loyalist paramilitaries and allegations of security force collusion in it.

But they are opposed to the British government's decision to hold the inquiry under the controversial Inquiries Act which gives ministers the right to suppress full publication of the final report.
