‘Disappointed but not Surprised at British Response to Finucane Enquiry’ – Pa Daly, TD

Kerry Sinn Féin TD, Pa Daly, expressed his disappointment at the British Government’s decision on the Pat Finucane murder enquiry.

Sinn Féin TD for Kerry, Pa Daly, expressed disappointment at the British Government’s decision not to hold an inquiry into the Pat Finucane’s murder. 

“I am disappointed, but not surprised, that the British Government has refused to open an inquiry into Pat Finucane’s murder because it will open up the level of collusion between loyalist paramilitaries and the British Government,” said Teachta Daly.

Circumstances of Solicitors’ Deaths

“Having worked as a solicitor I took an interest in the circumstances surrounding the deaths of Pat Finucane and Rosemary Nelson.

“Former British Home Office Minister, Douglas Hogg, made a statement in January 1989 that certain solicitors in the North were “unduly sympathetic to the cause of the IRA.”

An Insult to Finucane Family

“On February 12th 1989, UDA members known to work with British intelligence, walked into Pat Finucane’s kitchen and shot him in front of his wife and three children as they ate dinner.

“After all this time, to conclude that an investigation by the local police in Northern Ireland will suffice, as opposed to a public inquiry, is an insult to Pat Finucane’s family,” said Teachta Daly in conclusion.
