UK: Court adjourns Soldier F's trial over Bloody Sunday murder to line up witnesses

A Londonderry court adjourned the case of Soldier F, a former British paratrooper accused of two murders during the 1972 Bloody Sunday events, until January 17 at a hearing on Wednesday. According to Ciaran Shiels, the solicitor for the family of the Bloody Sunday victim William McKinney, some 25 witnesses were being lined up to be called in the prosecution. «There are 25 witnesses that... Еще Soldier F's legal team have indicated that they wish to hear oral evidence from. We know that all those witnesses are civilian witnesses,» said Shiels. ''It's another form of delay on behalf of the MoD. They slow the process up. We are now looking at the 17th of January before these witnesses are pre-questioned again. And that's going to take another month or two months for that to happen,» said Joe McKinney, William McKinney's brother. 13 people were killed on January 30, 1972 after British soldiers opened fire on a peaceful anti-internment protest in the Bogside area of Derry. A 14th person died four months later as a result of the injuries he had sustained.
