'I took blame for Post Office shortfall to protect my mum'

Ravinder Naga pleaded guilty to stealing £35,000 after auditors discovered a shortfall at Belville Street Post Office in Greenock. Mr Naga, from Port Glasgow, said he told her to tell Post Office investigators that he had stolen the money to "Buy some time". Mr Naga described how his parents had built a business portfolio - including the Post Office - from scratch when they came to Scotland. Mr Cunningham said Mr Naga's business connections to the Post Office - where he helped his mother on a regular basis - meant he may be included in the bill. A Post Office spokesperson said: "We apologise unreservedly for the hurt and suffering that was caused to victims of the Horizon IT Scandal and their loved ones."We know an apology from Post Office is not enough and so our focus remains on supporting the Public Inquiry to establish the truth, working with government to overturn wrongful convictions, and paying redress as quickly as possible.
