Bloody Sunday : Man Arrested!

33 years after the massacre, the state makes an arrest... of a civilian witness for not cooperating!
A Derry man who had refused the subpoena by British judge Lord Saville's enquiry into the Bloody Sunday killings was arrested on Wednesday.
The man, known to the enquiry as "PIRA9" had refused to cooperate with the tribunal becausof the harsh treatment given to civilan witnesses and the soft ride given to the soldiers who did the killings. Through his lawyers, he had told the tribunal that the evidence on which the subpoena calling him to testify was based - the testimony of a self confessed informer naming ”PIRA9”as an IRA man and placing him near the scene of the killings - was false and refutable in its entirety.
The irony of ”PIRA9”'s arrest and imprisonment, while the soldiers who did the killing remain unpunished, was not lost on relatives of those murdered on 30 Jan 1972. This is likely to be the only arrest made as a result of Bloody Sunday.
It is expected that X - who has been granted anonymity by the tribunal - will now testify by video link - though not from Maydown PSNI station as the tribunal had wanted.
