Finucanes to meet Cameron

BRITISH Prime Minister David Cameron has invited the family of murdered solicitor Pat Finucane to No 10 Downing Street tonight.

The private dinner comes amid speculation that the British government will announce that it is to hold an inquiry into the 1989 murder.

Tony Blair promised the victim's family the allegations would be investigated but no inquiry was set up.

The family of Mr Finucane, including his widow Geraldine and son Michael -- a Dublin-based human rights lawyer -- have pressed for years for an inquiry and will attend tonight's dinner.
