No immunity for Bloody Sunday soldiers

Issue No. 2393

Calls to drop prosecutions against British soldiers involved in Bloody Sunday in Northern Ireland have been met with anger by family campaigners.

Soldiers murdered 14 civilians in Derry on the day in 1972.

The call came after some suspected IRA members received letters offering them immunity, prompting complaints from unionist politicians.

“These soldiers hardly need letters. It’s all done with a nod and a wink. They have immunity,” said Kate Nash, whose brother William was killed.
