Meanwhile ASF has noticed a very telling feature of the coverage today.

Reading once again about those who the Paras killed – almost all were shot in the back or while trying to help.

From the families statement:

We would like to remind everyone that no prosecution, or if it comes to it, no conviction, does not mean not guilty. It does not mean that no crime was committed. It does not mean that those soldiers acted “in a dignified and appropriate way.”

It simply means that if these crimes had been investigated properly when they happened, and evidence gathered at the time, then the outcome would have been different.
