IRISH REPUBLICAN NEWS: Finucanes quit Downing St meeting over QC review plan
Finucanes quit Downing St meeting over QC review plan

The widow of murdered Belfast defence lawyer Pat Finucane said today she felt “angry” and “insulted” after David Cameron told her he was proposing a review of her husband’s case by a QC (British government lawyer).

After meeting the British Prime Minister at his offices in Number 10 Downing Street, Geraldine Finucane told reporters the whole family was “very disappointed” and would not support the proposal.

The Finucanes want a full independent inquiry into the Mr Finucane’s murder in 1989 by a British-run loyalist death squad.

Speaking in Downing Street, Mrs Finucane said: “I am so angry and so insulted by being brought to Downing Street today to hear what the Prime Minister had on offer.

“He is offering a review. He wants a QC to read the papers in my husband’s case and that is how he expects to reach the truth.

“All of us are very upset and very disappointed.”

She added that she was “so angry with the Prime Minister that I actually called a halt to the meeting”.
