‘Soldier F’ is expected to be called to Derry Magistrates’ Court to be charged with murdering two of the victims, William McKinney and James Wray.
He has also been accused of the attempted murder of four other civil rights protesters in Derry, Patrick O’Donnell, Michael Quinn, Joseph Friel and Joseph Mahon.
The Public Prosecution Service (PPS) has confirmed the plan in a letter to relatives of those allegedly shot by the former paratrooper.
Thirteen people were killed on Bloody Sunday, January 30, 1972, and a 14th victim died of related injuries months later.
It was announced in March that Soldier F would be the only member of the armed forces to face prosecution for his actions that day.
Since the announcement that Soldier F would be prosecuted banners in support have appeared in loyalist areas across the North of Ireland.
Ciaran Shiels of Madden and Finucane solicitors represents William McKinney’s brother Mickey McKinney and said that the PPS had confirmed in writing to Mr McKinney that Soldier F would be summoned to Derry.
Mr Shiels said that additional material outstanding from the PSNI would be provided to the PPS “very soon”.
“Upon consideration of this material, the PPS will consider whether to add this to the Committal Papers that are being currently prepared,” he said.
“We have requested a timetable in relation to the prosecutions and we had previously made submissions that Soldier F should face criminal proceedings in Derry as it was in this County Court Division where the crimes we say he committed took place.
“We can now confirm the that the Committal Papers for Soldier F’s Preliminary Enquiry will be served on him and his lawyers in next month and further that he will be summonsed to appear in Derry District Judges Court a date to be fixed in August 2019.”
