Finucanes will not participate in inquiry

The family of murdered Belfast solicitor Pat Finucane has ruled out participating in the British government's inquiry into his killing in 1989.

The family said it will not take part if legislation establishing the enquiry remained unchanged.

Following the publication of a proposed bill setting up the tribunal, the family expressed deep concern that the inquiry would not have full power to compel witnesses to appear before it and to subpoena documents.

Loyalist Ken Barrett was given a life sentence in September of this year after he admitted his role in the attack which was claimed by the Ulster Freedom Fighters.
