LAOH FFAI Conversation with Geraldine Finucane
Geraldine Finucane and her family have actively led a campaign in the UK for a full public inquiry into the February 12,1989 murder of her husband Pat Finucane. Over the years the family have pushed for answers, leading to multiple investigations. The results of these investigations has revealed evidence pointing to loyalist paramilitary collusion with British security forces. In 2012, PM David Cameron admitted that there were ‘shocking levels of collusion’ in the Pat Finucane Murder. https://www.theguardian.com/uk/2012/dec/12/david-cameron-pat-finucane-murder While he issued a public apology, he denied the Finucane family’s request for a full public inquiry. The significance of this admission by Cameron served to reinforce the campaign. In 2019 the family took their case to the UK Supreme Court which issued a unanimous decision that in the murder of Pat Finucane the UK had failed to uphold Article 2 of the European Convention on Human Rights. Yet to date the family’s request for a full public inquiry have been denied by the British government. By challenging the delay and deny strategy of the state every step of the way Geraldine Finucane serves as an inspiration to all victims and their families. Later this year she will be presented with the 2021 LAOH-AOH Sean McBride Humanitarian Award for the work she has done to help and inspire so many victims seeking justice. On the webinar panel Geraldine will be joined by her daughter Kathleen Finucane and journalist Andree Murphy, Deputy Director at Relatives for Justice. Please join us on Saturday June 19 as we hear in her own words what this journey has been like for Geraldine and her family and what the next steps are in this campaign for justice.
