British police and army agents planted inside Northern Ireland's major Protestant gang played a pivotal role in assassinating a Belfast attorney, a former U.N. war crimes investigator concluded in a damning report about one of the most divisive slayings of the entire four-decade conflict.
"At every turn, it is clear that this report has done exactly what was required: To give the benefit of the doubt to the state, its Cabinet and ministers, to the army, to the intelligence services, to itself," Mrs. Finucane told a news conference, flanked by her sons Michael and John, who both witnessed their father's killing and are human rights lawyers today.
"At every turn, dead witnesses have been blamed and defunct agencies found wanting. Serving personnel and active state departments appear to have been excused," she said.
