We very much welcome the Government’s pledge to exonerate and compensate all the innocent victims of the Post Office Horizon scandal, made in Parliament by Prime Minister Rishi Sunak today.
Whilst some of the pledges appear hugely positive, the finer detail of how this will be achieved is key.
Having supported subpostmasters for the past three-and-a-half years, we have seen how this scandal has impacted on each and every victim, and their wider families, in different ways, and how it continues to impact on them today.
We must be careful not to give them false hope from political promises only for them to be let down again. Our clients await the review of the finer detail that sits behind these proposals with considerable interest.
