Maskey calls for removal of 'Soldier F' banner
Sinn Féin MP Paul Maskey has called for the removal of an offensive banner referring to a former British soldier accused of murder on Bloody Sunday close to Belfast city centre to be removed.
Paul Maskey said:
“The appearance of a banner in support of Soldier F, the former British soldier accused of murder in relation to Bloody Sunday, on Sandy Row close to Belfast city centre is concerning.
“This is close to shopping centres, car parks and other amenities which are used by people from across Belfast and visitors to our city.
“This banner will cause distress not only to the families of those killed on Bloody Sunday and those killed by the parachute regiment in Ballymurphy but also other victims of state violence.
“It should be removed immediately.”
