A 14th person died later.The former paratrooper, who was questioned at a police station in England, insists the three people he fired on that day were all armed, despite the findings of the Saville Inquiry.The Public Prosecution Service is currently considering a file from the PSNI and is expected to decide if former soldiers will be prosecuted for the killings on Bloody Sunday.Meanwhile, Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson is challenged about his previous support for an amnesty for soldiers, but he does say “No one would really want to see service personnel, who’ve served their country, being dragged through the courts.”When asked if soldiers should escape prosecution he said “we need to find a way to bring closure to events of the past.” WhatsApp Previous article32 people awaiting in-patient beds at LUHNext articleAidan Friel signs for Shelbourne News Highland Important message for people attending LUH’s INR clinic News, Sport and Obituaries on Monday May 24th Google+ By News Highland – December 11, 2018 Legacy of Bloody Sunday considered in BBC Radio 4 documentarycenter_img Pinterest RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Journey home will be easier – Paul Hegarty Google+ Homepage BannerNews DL Debate – 24/05/21 Pinterestlast_img
