Clutching at straws now son.No it’s not obvious.
The RUC/PSNI have consistently stated that it is not their belief that Pat Finucane was a member of the IRA.
Jack Hermon never stated that Pat Finucane was a member of the IRA, he used weasel words like “associated with” because Finucane knew and acted for members of the IRA. He also acted for Loyalist paramilitaries; was he associated with them?
Hermon was terrified that Finucane would re-open the ‘shoot to kill’ cases from the early 1980’s which had Hermon’s fingerprints all over them, so he had Finucane murdered and then blackened his name afterwards in the hope that his murder would be glossed over.
How’s that working out?
The chief constable had him murdered, that is just silly.
By the way, the same rubbish that he represented loyalists. Maybe then it was just a disgruntled client that killed him.
