Dublin rap for David Cameron over Pat Finucane move

The Irish government has hit out at Prime Minister David Cameron over his refusal to order a public inquiry into the murder of Belfast solicitor Pat Finucane.

After a meeting with Mr Finucane’s widow Geraldine and son Michael, Tanaiste and Foreign Affairs Minister Eamon Gilmore accused London of falling short of a deal struck at the Weston Park peace talks in 2001.

Signalling a souring in relations between both governments, Mr Gilmore said Dublin had already conveyed its dissatisfaction and would be preparing a formal response in the coming days.

The Finucane family walked out on a meeting with Mr Cameron at Downing Street last Tuesday after his decision to reject a public inquiry.
