"I feel ashamed" says Post Office Horizon lawyer
A barrister who acted for the Post Office in the criminal trial of two wrongly convicted sub-postmasters over the Horizon IT scandal has apologised for his role in their convictions. "I feel ashamed that I was part of this" said barrister, Warwick Tatford. The Post Office Inquiry is now focussing on how sub-postmasters were prosecuted. Emails showed to the inquiry showed Gareth Jenkins to be "Reluctant" to make a clear statement over whether there were problems with Horizon. Mr Tatford said he'd made it clear he needed to have disclosures of any problems relating to the reliability of the Horizon system.
