Richard Waghorne and Michael Finucane exchange pleasantries yesterday over the death of Michael’s father, Pat, a Belfast solicitor murdered in front of his family (including Michael) at his home in 1989 by the UDA/UFF.
Now that‘s attorney-client privilege.

Mr Cameron said the report also answered questions about how high the collusion went, finding ministers had not been involved – but that they may have been wrongly advised.
He added: “Sir Desmond is satisfied there was not an overarching state conspiracy to murder Patrick Finucane (above).
“But while he rejects any state conspiracy he does find, quite frankly, shocking levels of state collusion. He is, and I quote, left in significant doubt as to whether Patrick Finucane would have been murdered by the Ulster Defence Association in February 1989 had it not been for the different strands of involvement by elements of the state.”
