British Government Deny Finucane Inquiry Because They Have Something to Hide

Aontú Deputy Leader and Fermanagh South Tyrone Representative Cllr Denise Mullen has castigated the British government’s point blank refusal to investigate the murder of Pat Finucane, and to continually deny the Finucane family justice.

Cllr Mullen:

“For people of the North, sadly, today’s disgraceful decision by the Tories to deny the Finucane family the truth once again was simply another episode in the decades of British resistance to Justice, especially when it comes to Ireland. There is no legal, moral or justifiable reason that the role of British authorities in the murder of Pat Finucane is not investigated. This is a cover up – clear as the light of day. This is a point blank refusal to pursue justice and truth for the Finucane family.”

“Why are we surprised though? If the British begin investigating the murder of Pat Finucane, they would have to investigate all the murders perpetrated by the Glenanne Gang or the role of British intel in Eddie Fullerton’s murder. They are consistently acting unjustly and in violation of the Good Friday Agreement. It seems to be the firm intention of the Tories in Westminster to break elements of the Good Friday Agreement and prevent truth, justice, and reconciliation in the North. Today, is a sad day for the North – but not a surprise.”

The Irish political system is radically broken

In Ireland the vast majority of elected representatives put a finger in the air to check which way the political wind is blowing. They have one eye on their leaders – seeking brownie points – and another eye keeping their seat safe. If elected reps shut up and do as they’re told, they are promoted; if they stand up for what they believe in, they are demoted. No wonder we have the political class we have. No wonder one point one billion euro is being buried in a hole under the National Children’s Hospital and that Stormont is in stalemate.

Throughout Ireland, many people are now afraid to say what they feel, many are afraid to respectfully engage on a range of different topics. Many feel there is a new censorship and a new political correctness in Ireland, that opposition to the establishment is being deleted.

Respectful opposition is not the enemy. Respectful opposition is a critical element of a functional democracy. Aontú will have the backbone to stand up, without fear, for you.
