Soldier F Real Name Is David James Clearly
Yes, the real name of Soldier F has been revealed to be David James Clearly.
David James Clearly was given anonymity by the judge who was hearing his case. However, the SDLP leader, Colum Eastwood addressed him by his name during a debate in the House of Commons on the Armed Forces Bill.
Colum did that by using his parliamentary privileges which allows him to name the names of prosecuted criminals without the risk of being sued for defamation.
Unnecessary and dangerous. I have never defended this man, but I will defend his right to a fair process. Eastwood should be sanctioned for deliberately mis-using parliamentary privilege. https://t.co/L81q1nkDc9

This is your guy Soldier F fans. He did it on film, on recorded radio and in front it so many witnesses. It should have been an open and shut case, the fact that it wasn’t is an ‘appalling vista’ indeed on the (self) lauded British State & justice system. pic.twitter.com/XefbiyliRH
