Yesterday David Cameron admitted that there was ‘shocking levels of (British state) collusion’ in the Pat Finucane murder, but how much more collusion has there been that still has to be uncovered?

Pat Finucane
Patrick Finucane was shot dead in 1989

Pat Finucane was a high-profile solicitor who lived and worked in Belfast. The 39-year-old Catholic was shot dead by loyalist paramilitaries in 1989.

In his role as a defence solicitor, he had represented clients who included convicted members of the Irish Republican Army (IRA) and families involved in shoot-to-kill allegations against the then police force, the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC).

There have been long-standing allegations that members of the UK security forces colluded in his murder. (BBC)
