Two Lives one Truth - A miscarriage of Justice

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

This workshop explains that they were convicted despite evidence being tampered with, dodgy forensics and the main witness being labelled a 'Walter Mitty' character.
