The law firm co-owned by Sinn Fein MP and high-profile solicitor John Finucane acted for a global drug lord when he threatened to sue several Irish newspapers.

Daniel Kinahan engaged Mr Finucane's firm, Finucane Toner, to send out legal letters after he was named as the head of one of the world's biggest drug cartels.

The company, in which Mr Finucane is one of two partners, sent out two letters in April this year.
