A former British paratrooper is being charged for his role in the killing of more than a dozen Northern Ireland civil rights protestors during the Bloody Sunday massacre in 1972.
Northern Ireland’s Public Prosecution Service announced the decision on Thursday, with director Stephen Herron, saying there was “sufficient evidence” to prosecute, according to The Guardian.
The article goes on to state the following:
“It has been concluded that there is sufficient available evidence to prosecute one former soldier, Soldier F, for the murder of James Wray and William McKinney, and for the attempted murders of Joseph Friel, Michael Quinn, Joe Mahon and Patrick O’Donnell,” Herron said. “In respect of the other 18 suspects, including 16 former soldiers and two alleged Official IRA members, it has been concluded that the available evidence is insufficient to provide a reasonable prospect of conviction.”
The former soldier will not be named, The Guardian reported. The news outlet added that he will only be identified through letters that were used during an inquiry into the massacre that ran between 1998 and 2010.
