Peter Madden of Madden & Finucane Solicitors said:

“All five justices of The Supreme Court have unanimously stated that in light of its finding that Pat Finucane’s right to life had been violated, that it is now for the British Government to arrive at a mechanism to comply with Article 2.

“We say that the only possible process which can establish the full circumstances of Pat’s murder is by the establishment of a full public judicial inquiry which possesses the full range of powers which the flawed processes such as the paper de Silva Review clearly lacked.

“The Government should move to do so without further delay or prevarication.”
