Unsolved Murders in Northern Ireland

Concerned both by the long, drawn-out, and circumscribed police investigations being conducted into the murders of Patrick Finucane and Rosemary Nelson, two British citizens and solicitors who were born and lived all their lives in Northern Ireland, and the allegations that the security forces of Britain and Northern Ireland were involved in their murders, the National Committee on American Foreign Policy urges the British government to commence immediately open, public judicial inquiries that alone have the jurisdiction and the authority to summon witnesses, to subpoena documents, to hear evidence furnished by the relatives of the victims, and to issue complete, unexpurgated reports of their findings for public consumption.
