BREAKING: Soldier F not to appear on first day of hearing in Londonderry

It has been revealed that a Solder, given the alias name Soldier F, will NOT appear on the first day of a hearing at Londonderry Magistrates.

The ex-British Soldier could be facing prosecution over two murder on Bloody Sunday, after the PPS ruled in March that there was enough evidence to charge him with the ‘killings’.

BUT now instead of Soldier F attending the first day of the hearing, due in court next Wednesday (September 18), he will instead be represented by his lawyers.

There has been widespread condemnation for those who died as a result of bullets fired by British Soldiers on that day, including that of the two individuals – James Wray & William McKinney – who Soldier F is accused of killing, but so to have their been support and anger at the prosecutor of Ex servicemen.

Last month a parade was organised in Ballymoney to remember those involved in Operation Banner, 5o years after it first began.

The parade, organised by ‘Para Fightback’, also remembers those veterans now facinging prosecution.

This was one of a number of similar parades which took place around Northern Ireland, with many other towns and cities showing support in recent months with the erection of banners.
