Justice for Northern Ireland will continue to stand by our elderly veteran, soldier F. One soldier is one too many. Help and assistance was initially asked of the UK government by Northern Ireland to combat the escalating unrest.
Get-out-of-Jail-Free cards and letters have been issued to terrorists prohibiting their prosecution whilst the door has been left open for brave UK veterans to be prosecuted. Those soldiers conducted their duties amongst a toxic environment, so to judge them 40 years later is totally wrong.
The Good Friday agreement may have brought and end to military action by the terrorist groups but the men and women, who for 30 years stood in the front line of democracy and upheld the rule of law and worked within it, now find themselves exposed.
