Letter from Madden & Finucane Solicitors to Secretary of State

Secretary of State
Castle Buildings


Dear Secretary of State,

Re: Judge Cory's Report

As you know, we act on behalf of the family of Pat Finucane.

We were concerned to learn that the BBC this morning broadcast what purported to be the recommendations of Judge Cory and the reasons why his report has not yet been made public.

We would be obliged if you would let us know by return if the BBC report is accurate.

Please also let us know when you intend to inform our clients of the contents of Judge Cory's report and whether or not any recommendations will be implemented.

We would remind you that our clients' campaign for the establishment of a full public judicial inquiry will continue and anything less will not be acceptable. Our clients will decide on the acceptability of the implementation of any such recommendation and will maintain the consistency and determination that they have displayed over so many years.

Yours sincerely,

Peter Madden
Madden & Finucane
