Prosecution of Soldier F for Bloody Sunday killings to resume (via Irish Times)

Soldier F charged with murder of William McKinney and James Wray and five counts of attempted murder

The prosecution of Soldier F for murder and attempted murder on Bloody Sunday is to resume.

The North’s Public Prosecution Service (PPS) confirmed on Thursday it had decided to continue with proceedings against Soldier F, which it had put on hold last year.

It follows the decision by senior judges in Belfast to refuse the PPS leave to appeal a ruling earlier this year quashing the decision to discontinue legal proceedings against Soldier F.

Mickey McKinney, the brother of William McKinney — one of two victims in relation to whom Soldier F faced a charge of murder — welcomed the decision and said he was “delighted” the prosecution of Soldier F was to recommence.
