Three decades after the assassination of Pat Finucane, his family have hit yet another brick wall with the British government once again refusing a public inquiry.

Nothing short of insulting,” said the murdered solicitor’s son John who as an eight-year-old child hid under the kitchen table with his brother and sister as loyalist gunmen pumped bullets into his father.

Geraldine Finucane, who was hit in the ankle during the 1989 attack as the family ate Sunday dinner, described the government’s decision as a mockery of justice.
