Finucane family will boycott probe

THE family of murdered Belfast solicitor Pat Finucane has angrily denounced British government plans to hold an official inquiry at least partially in camera, warning that they will boycott it.

Mr Finucane's widow Geraldine, and his sons Michael and John, met with Taoiseach Bertie Ahern at Government Buildings yesterday to press their concerns.

They said afterwards that Mr Ahern had fully backed their position and outlined his own view that anything short of a full public inquiry would fall short of previous guarantees.

A British inquiry in the absence of total transparency would be "meaningless", warned Michael Finucane who added that there was now ample evidence of British intelligence involvement in the 1989 loyalist murder of his father.
