The third annual Margaret River SHS Forensic Science Lecture will focus on the investigation around a headline-making nerve agent poisoning case in the UK.
On March 4, 2018 a former Russian military intelligence officer and his daughter were found slumped on a park bench in the small English market town of Salisbury.
Within days it became apparent they had been poisoned with a nerve agent developed by the Russian military.
The presentation from award-winning lecturer and forensic researcher Professor Simon Lewis will give a case study of the events and the subsequent investigation that lead to the identification and charging of two Russian military intelligence operatives for the attack.
This is a wonderful opportunity for all Margaret River residents high school age and older to experience first hand a presentation from a real forensic scientist- find out how different it is to TV forensics!
