Did Margaret Thatcher sanction the murder of Patrick Finucane? It is now up to PM Boris Johnson and his Home Secretary, Priti Patel, to order a full judicial inquiry into the murder to establish whether or not Thatcher gave Sir Patrick Walker, Director-General of MI5, the green light to assassinate him.
On 12 February, 1989, the UDA assassinated Patrick Finucane, a highly regarded Belfast solicitor, at his North Belfast home. Finucane, who was 38-years-old, was shot 14 times by two masked UDA gunmen who sledgehammered their way into his house. His wife Geraldine was also injured during the attack which took place while the couple was enjoying a meal with their young family.
In 2019 the Supreme Court in London ruled that the British Government had failed to investigate the murder properly. The only tenable reason for this is because the murder was organised by MI5, the intelligence service attached to the Home Office.
A retired Canadian judge, Peter Cory, investigated the murder on behalf of the British State. During his inquiry MI5 officers broke into his office and stole some of the evidence he had accumulated.
Cory also told Geraldine Finucane that he had seen a document relevant to her husband’s case which was marked ‘for Cabinet eyes only’. Mrs. Finucane knows no more.
