Peter Madden of Madden & Finucane said:

“Tomorrow morning at the High Court in Belfast, Pat Finucane’s wife Geraldine will challenge the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland’s delay – now in excess of 20 months – in reaching a decision on how the British Government will respond to the ruling by the UK Supreme Court that there has been no investigation into Pat’s murder which has been capable of being effective to satisfy Article 2 of the European Convention on Human Rights.

“Only a full and transparent judicial public inquiry, with the powers to compel production of documents and the examination of witnesses can reveal the true extent of the ‘shocking levels of collusion’, as described by former Prime Minister David Cameron, between the British state and loyalist paramilitaries in Pat’s murder.”
