Pat Finucane murder 'caused by British infiltration policy', court told

The murder of Belfast lawyer Pat Finucane was part of British state policy to infiltrate, manipulate and direct terror groups during the Northern Ireland Troubles, Belfast high court has heard.

Paramilitary organisations such as the Ulster Defence Association which murdered the solicitor were able to carry out “extrajudicial executions” for the state, a lawyer representing the Finucane family said on Monday.
