Only one former military prosecuted for role in Bloody Sunday

One British ex-military man is now prosecuted for his role during Bloody Sunday, when fourteen unarmed demonstrating boys and men in 1972 by British troops were shot dead in the Northern Irish city of Londonderry.

He is prosecuted for two murders, is to be read in a press statement that by British media spread.

The police and justitieonderzoek to Bloody Sunday and now has seven years. The role of eighteen military is viewed, one of them died recently. Now is, therefore, only one of the men prosecuted, as against the rest “insufficient evidence”.

The research from justice, followed a twelve-year-old political research, which in 2010 was noted that the paratroopers of the control had been lost and that therefore the deaths.

Bloody Sunday is one of the most notorious incidents during the period known as The Troubles. Northern Ireland struggled in the second half of the twentieth century, with violence and unrest. U2 sang in the song Sunday Bloody Sunday (1983) about the event.
