Statement of Geraldine Finucane to the Commission on Security and Co-operation in Europe United States Helsinki Committee, Washington,
Geraldine Finucane | 05 May 2004
My name is Geraldine Finucane. My husband was Patrick Finucane, the Belfast solicitor murdered by Loyalist paramilitaries in 1989. My family and I have campaigned assiduously since Pat’s murder for a fully independent, judicial public inquiry into his murder. We have done so because of the existence of compelling evidence that Pat’s murder was part of an approved policy of widespread collusion between the British State and loyalist assassins that amounts to state murder by proxy.
