No Prosecution In The Pat Finucane Case- Quelle Surprise

So the Public Prosecution Service in its wisdom has declared that the puppet masters behind the assassination of Pat Finucane will not face justice. Why does this not come as a shock? Despite the fact that it is clearly evident that sickening collusion of the highest order played a role in this killing and many others, the plug has been pulled on justice. What have they got to hide?

Stevens found that collusion happened. The people of the north know that collusion happened. But rather than there being the full and independent inquiry and legal actions which such revelations warrant, the unaccountable British authorities have just decided to brush it under the carpet.

There's no comeback. There's no right to find out the details. That's 'democracy' for you.

The same happened at the time of the Stormontgate collapse- still the vast majority of us don't know exactly what went on there thanks to the British cover-up.

I've said time and time again that people who have nothing to hide have no reason to cover up the events of the past. If the British authorities have nothing to hide, then let them prove it by bringing the full rigour of the law to bear on cases like the Pat Finucane one. Otherwise, people like me who want to see justice for victims of the Troubles will continue to see the British Government as complicit in the continued protection of murderous scumbags.

I suppose if we adapt your final sentence like this... "Otherwise, people like me who want to see justice for victims of the Troubles will continue to see the Irish Government as complicit in the continued protection of murderous scumbags".....you'd agree completely with regard to the Finucane (and so many others) who escaped extradition from the Irish Republic to Northern Ireland to answer for their heinous crimes?

Finucane escaped extradition to the north? What are you on about? And if you're talking about bringing people to justice, I believe that all those who were engaged in acts of violence (or assisting in the commission thereof) should face justice, regardless of the jurisdiction in which they currently reside.
