Call for 'full and fair' payouts in Post Office scandal
The head of an inquiry into the Post Office scandal has called for action and law changes to stop issues "Blocking full and fair compensation". Sir Wyn has set out recommendations to the government and Post Office. Between 2000 and 2014, more than 700 Post Office managers were given criminal convictions when faulty accounting software, called Horizon, made it look as though money was missing from their sites. In a report laid before Parliament on Monday, the retired judge said there was no "Valid legal reason" why the government and Post Office "Cannot give effect to the commitments they which they have made" in providing "Full and fair" compensation. The former High Court judge has long held concerns about the slow progress of compensation for Post Office staff.
