Two Lives one Truth - A miscarriage of Justice

Brendan Mc Conville and John Paul Wootton (known as The Craigavon Two) are into their 10th year in prison for a crime they say they didn't commit. They were convicted of the murder of Police Officer Stephen Carroll and they've suffered a terrible miscarriage of justice (MOJ).

This interactive workshop explains how these men were convicted despite evidence being tampered with, dodgy forensics and the main witness being labelled a 'Walter Mitty' character. The workshop aims to:

  • Inform attendees of The Craigavon Two case

  • Discuss MOJs and how easily they happen

  • Encourage attendees to spread the word and take action 

This workshop is ideal for those with a passion for justice and miscarriages of justice, who wish to see authorities held to account for their misdeeds and see people put before profit and at the center of policy.
