Martin Finucane, the brother of Pat Finucane said,

I have read, with dismay, a transcript of the remarks made yesterday at the NI Assembly at Stormont.

“These allegations about Pat have been made before.

“They have been refuted before.

“They will continue to be refuted.

“There is no truth in the allegations.

“If those who make such allegations are to be given credibility then they need to make the allegations in public and prove them.

“No one needs to disprove any allegations.

“It is a fundamental principle that those who assert must prove.

“I await the day when these allegations are made at a Public Judicial Inquiry when they will be exposed for the lies that they undoubtedly are.”
