Mo Courtney

CONVICTED UDA killer Mo Courtney has denied being one of the gunmen who murdered solicitor Pat Finucane.

The loyalist's rebuttal came after the British government said it would not be holding a public inquiry into the fatal shooting, which former Prime Minister David Cameron admitted involved "shocking levels of collusion".

Courtney was named as the second gunman by UDA assassin and Special Branch agent Ken Barrett, who was convicted of the 1989 Finucane murder. He was also named as one of the killers in a court affidavit by Detective Chief Inspector Graham Taylor, from the Metropolitan Police, who investigated the killing.
