American DNA Expert to Defend Man Accused for 7 Armed Robberies

american-dna-expertAccording to sources, an Albanian man will be standing on trial in Crete on the 4th of December, and an American DNA expert is expected to support his case as a witness.
Mark Marcu, is the young man who is accused of participating in seven armed robberies which took place in Crete 2010, and sentenced to 18 years behind bars. Dr. Greg Hampikian is the DNA expert who will prove that the defendant’s DNA found on a pair of rubber gloves is unreliable, misleading and doesn’t prove the involvement of the accused.
Julie Marku, the defendants Irish wife who works as a preschool teacher from Carlow, and her parents, Bill and Phyl O’ Reilly, think that the trial was a miscarriage of justice.
According to them, Mark was in Ireland when three of the seven robberies took place, and this can be proven through the flight records and affidavits. Furthermore, they also said that the prosecution failed to provide any evidence for 11 of the 16 charges brought against him.
Although his family says that three witnesses identified Marku by face and body type in three separate robberies at the trial, all of the witnesses attested that the robbers wore masks, thus making it impossible to identify them by their facial features.
