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.
