We at UNMUTED are proud to support our brave veterans and ex-service personnel who have so valiantly served this nation in many conflicts.
In particular, we are of the long-held view that the long-running and politically motivated witch-hunt against Northern Ireland Veterans must stop.
Is it fair or just that many of the terrorists who murdered innocents in the Northern Ireland ‘troubles’ were released from prison under the terms of the Good Friday Agreement – yet members of our forces who defended us face being targeted in this way?
It seems that Justice has been denied in respect of these veterans for too long.
Many of these men are elderly and approaching the last leg of their lives. They now spend every moment waiting for a knock at their door regarding events of 40 or 50 years ago. It is shameful.
When a nation sends its troops to battle, the Government of the day should look after them when they return from service. Sadly, we have seen and we continue to see too many cases in all parts of the United Kingdom where this is not the case.
