Charged over an incident that occurred in 1974
Stan Says: yesterday the trial of an 80 year old British Army Veteran continued in Northern Ireland in a system with no Jury!
Mr Hutchings is an HM Forces veteran who today was charged for murder and GBH, dating back to an incident in 1974, when he was serving in Northern Ireland.
He’s an elderly man who’s been through several investigations and inquiries and none of which resulted prosecution.
Boris Johnson promised to protect our veterans but, as he has on just about every other issue, subsequently reneged on that promise.
If a British Government cannot stand by their soldiers who they sent into battle – we are doomed. Who will be brave enough to enlist knowing that IRA Terrorists on the one hand are ‘Pardoned’ for there heinous crimes, and soldiers carrying out orders face prosecution if not prosecuted!
The Alliance for Democracy and Freedom Party oppose this inequity and believe it is time to tell those who will not stop scratching the sore that it is time to move on, and I have to agree.
