Bloody Sunday 1972

The families of those killed on Bloody Sunday, and the wounded, will learn if any other soldiers are to be prosecuted for the events of Bloody Sunday this coming Tuesday, 29 September.

In March 2019, the Public Prosecution Service announced that only one soldier, currently known as ‘Soldier F’ would be prosecuted for two counts of murder and five counts of attempted murder.

Madden & Finucane lodged a 149 page legal submission challenging the reasons advanced by the PPS for not prosecuting other soldiers, and indeed for not prosecuting Soldier F for a further three counts of murder and two counts of attempted murder.

The PPS has now completed a review of its original decision and will publish its decisions on Tuesday morning.
