Letter to the editor

I am absolutely ashamed and disgusted to see two soldiers on trial in Northern Ireland 50 years after the incident for which they are charged, which was to catch a known IRA murderer.

It is also a disgrace as I watch terrorists sit in Stormont and move around this country with pardons and ‘free to roam’ letters.

Shame on you Northern Ireland.
