'We can breathe': Former sub-postmasters have convictions over IT scandal quashed

 

The convictions of Chris Trousdale and others at magistrates' courts, which were based on evidence provided by a faulty accounting system, have been quashed after the Post Office admitted they were "unsafe" and apologised.

 

The Post Office had earlier said it would not oppose attempts to overturn the convictions of 44 sub-postmasters.

 

Hundreds of sub-postmasters were incorrectly accused of wrongdoing after the Horizon IT system was added to Post Office branches across the country between 2000 and 2002.

Heard about this over the last few years .

 

Outrageous that innocent folk were prosecuted and jailed based on totally unreliable analysis and interpretation of data.

 

They deserve to be fully compensated.

We could do with some help from you

Egregious part was the PO knew the system was at fault and prosecuted on a falsehood, some of those gaffers should go to jail, but sadly they won't. Just hope they compensate the wrongly convicted Postmaster's. Sadly won't help those who died before they could be cleared.

Yeah, the PO or their "auditors" must have known the system was throwing up false data but they chose to blindly stick with their numbers and assume PostMasters were fiddling.

 

Scandalous !!

They initiated prosecutions in full knowledge the system not the Postmasters was causing spurious discrepancies, the evidence was wrong it amounted virtually to perjury.  The execs should go on trial who were involved and carried on the prosecutions

Convicted Post Office workers have names cleared - BBC News

 

The Court of Appeal also allowed the appeals on the basis that their prosecutions were an affront to justice - a decision that allows for the possibility of further claims for compensation against the Post Office.

Not before time, the Post Office Executives that condoned and implemented the prosecutions on dodgy evidence from a borked IT system  should go to jail.

As Duke Nukem from the 1995 game would say " Thas's Gotta Hurt"  Any exec involved in pushing prosecutions in full knowledge Horizon was seriously borked should go to jail.
