Pat Finucane was shot dead in 1989
The British government is to publish a review into the killing of Belfast lawyer Pat Finucane on 12 December.
The murdered solicitor’s family have campaigned for a full public inquiry to be held, a demand refused by the British authorities.
The murder of Mr Finucane in front of his wife and family in 1989 was one of the most controversial killings of the Troubles.
It was carried out by loyalist paramilitaries with numerous allegations in the aftermath that British security forces colluded with the killers.
British Prime Minister David Cameron has accepted collusion took place and apologised to the Finucane family but refused to establish a public inquiry – opting instead for a review of the evidence.
This was carried out by the London-based lawyer Desmond de Silva and is to be published next month.
