The Real Face of the Pat Finucane Solicitors part 2 of 4

PART 2 - Expose The Pat Finucane Centre and the IRA Finucane Family Dynasty.

Outlines a brief overview of Dermot Finucane's nefarious IRA crimes. How he avoided extradition from the ROI and its justice system & courts and how he eventually obtained an amnesty by Tony Blair...! Pat Finucane – had three brothers – John, Seamus and Dermot – all three were prominent IRA members committed to the IRA’s sectarian 'blood lust' campaign of violence and to its belief that it had the authority and power to extinguish the Civil Rights and Human Rights of ALL its many victims, from babes in a pram to individuals made into human bombs.! Dermot Finucane first and foremost was an IRA Human Right's Violator. He was arrested on February 7, 1981, the day after a 36-year-old police officer, Charles Lewis, was murdered coming out of a newsagent on Balmoral Avenue, Belfast. A second police officer was seriously wounded. Dermot was charged with the murder of Charles Lewis and remanded in custody. On May 22 Dermot was released after the DPP directed no prosecution ‘due to lack of corroborative evidence of identification’. However, Dermot was arrested three months later on August 20, 1981, along with the infamous 'Bobby Storey' after a British Army patrol came under fire from a car. The RUC thereupon noticed a car with three men mount a footpath, saw a rifle in the car and fired on it. Dermot Finucane surrendered to the RUC and survives. Found in the car was a .223 AR15 semi-automatic and a .223 M16 A1 semi-automatic weapons. Dermot was later sentenced to 18 years imprisonment for possession of weapons with intent to endanger life. It is noteworthy that far from an alleged ‘shoot to kill’ policy (which Sinn Fein continually allege) the RUC were continually arresting prominent IRA so-called volunteers in possession of guns and bombs and turning them over to the courts, again and again.! Whereas when the IRA abducted police, military and civilians, they always executed them, some of them after periods of torture! While IRA prisoners had human rights and a string of lawyers, victims of the IRA got no such rights, lawyers or mercies, like Jean McConville a mother of 10, just one of the 1,700 innocents murdered by the IRA. Dermot while serving his 18-year sentence participated in the IRA Maze Escape, in September 1983 during which it was recorded that HE stabbed several prison officers with a chisel. One officer James Ferris lost his life shortly after being stabbed three times during the Maze escape. Dermot Finucane was subsequently arrested in Annagh, Longford, in the Republic of Ireland on November 23, 1987, and one of the warrants was for the murder of James Ferris. He fought some extradition hearings and eventually the Irish Supreme Court ruled that his offences were political, not criminal, and he should NOT be extradited to Northern Ireland.! Quite unbelievable or was it.? After almost 20 years of living free in the Republic of Ireland, Dermot was one of nearly two hundred IRA hardcore members who were gifted amnesties by Tony Blair’s Labour government and he was able to return to Northern Ireland a free man, without having to return to the Maze prison to serve any of his unserved sentences following his earlier escape.? In June 2014 the DUP stated the On-the-run letters must be ‘null and void’ however, we all still await this commitment to be delivered? Dermot Finucane when on to be a grateful recipient and holder of such a letter, a British Amnesty. In the book, 'A Secret History of the IRA', Ed Moloney wrote: 'Pat Finucane, who had been Bobby Sand's solicitor, was the principal defence lawyer for arrested IRA suspects in Belfast, and his family was steeped in republican activity. A brother John was killed on IRA active service in a car crash in 1972; another brother, Dermot, was on IRA GHQ staff, and a third brother, Seamus, was on the Belfast Brigade staff'..! They may well be given so-called ranks within a nefarious criminal cabal but they were individuals who were part of a sectarian 'blood lust' organisation whose only aim was to bomb and murder. Note: the Pat Finucane Centre chooses NOT to investigate IRA’s Human Rights violations over 30 years, of murders, bombings, abductions, torture, punishment beatings, punishment shootings, human bombs and the disappearance of civilians.! ? Like Sinn Féin and 'Relatives for Justice' (another so-called Human Rights Group) they never mention ANY of the thousands IRA’s Human Right's violations - yet, Stormont (with the consent of Unionists) continues to provide funding via The Victims and Survivor's Service.! ??
