Finuance case more extreme than Lawrence

Published 12/03/2014

FOLLOWING a review into events after the killing of Stephen Lawrence in 1993, there is to be a further, judge-led public inquiry.

Imagine that two members of the gang which killed Stephen were paid agents of the state, a third member was recruited as a paid agent after the killing, police officers incited members of the gang to kill Stephen and another paid agent handed over the weapon to the gang. Imagine the government refused a request for a full public inquiry into this.

This happened in the case of the murder of Pat Finucane. Yet David Cameron is the latest PM to refuse a public inquiry.
