Launch of The Irish Innocence Project
The Irish Innocence Project was formally launched on the 6th of March 2010 by Dr. Greg Hampikian, director of the Idaho Innocence Project and DNA expert for the Georgia Innocence Project.
“It is a great honour to be able to bring a programme such as this to Ireland”, Langwallner said. “Students will benefit enormously from this ground-breaking scheme and hopefully in years to come we will be producing results such as those currently being achieved by Dr. Hampikian and his colleagues in America”. Hampikian said he was honoured to participate in opening and supporting the first Irish project.
