Andrew Bridgen MP insists that there must be a public enquiry into the Post Office Horizon scandal that is shaking up the U.K.
After years of cover-ups and denials from the Government and from the Post Office, I am pleased to see that today, 39 subpostmasters, wrongly accused have had their convictions overturned.
This whole affair is a national scandal that has led to innocent people being jailed and hundreds of other hard-working individuals losing their livelihood and good names.
Having campaigned on this issue for 10 years, supporting the Justice for Subpostmasters Alliance, alongside Lord Arbuthnot and Kevan Jones MP, we have been highlighting the fact that evidence was being hidden from the Courts and our Justice System in order to protect the Post Office and its senior management.
Even when the Post Office and Government Ministers knew the Horizon System was flawed, they covered it up and spent hundreds of millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money on lawyers to defend the indefensible whilst allowing individuals to go to prison and others having their lives ruined.
A full public inquiry now needs to be launched into this scandal with a proper compensation scheme to recompense all those wrongly accused and convicted who have had their lives turned upside down, including my constituents Mr & Mrs. Rudkin.
In my column for The Pavlovic Today published in June last year, I called for a judge-led inquiry into the Post Office Horizon software scandal, and given today’s ruling that’s what must happen.
