Collusion Trail Hotting Up?

Tommy Gorman of RTE (amongst others) has carried several reports in the past two months alluding to the imminent publication of a damning Police Ombudsman report into Special Branch collusion with loyalist paramilitaries, particularly in the Mount Vernon area of North Belfast. The case which seems to have ignited the interest was the murder of Raymond McCord, whose father met Taoiseach Bertie Ahern today.
Meanwhile, said Taoiseach has repeated his strong opposition to the British government’s proposed inquiry into the murder of Pat Finucane. Interestingly, it would appear that Britain is experiencing some difficulty in getting an international legal figure who would be willing to head the inquiry, given the level of opposition within legal circles to the British government on this one.
