US Congress in Finucane plea

From the Belfast Telegraph:

American Congressmen have written to Prime Minister Tony Blair, asking him to drop new legislation that allows his Government to keep secrets from an inquiry into Pat Finucane’s murder.

The letter from 24 members of the US Congress, sent yesterday, calls on Mr Blair to immediately proceed with the independent investigation into collusion in the 1989 murder.

The Finucane family were at Westminster last week to protest against the Inquiries Bill. My story on the event for the Irish World is archived here.
