Sinn Féin MLA and Justice spokesperson, Raymond McCartney, has welcomed the decision by the Supreme Court Justices to grant leave to appeal to the Finucane family challenging the decision of former British Prime Minister David Cameron’s reneging on a Public Inquiry into the murder of Human Right’s solicitor Pat Finucane.
Speaking today Raymond McCartney said:
“Geraldine Finucane and her family should be commended for pursuing this case through the courts and for showing continued determination in their search for justice.
“The family have been involved in a long battle with the British state over the circumstances of Pat Finucane’s death and the role of the British state and of its agents in carrying out that murder.
“Sinn Féin will continue to support the Finucane family in their search for truth.”
