Does anyone else find this horrifying and incredible? At least 57 people, probably hundreds more, wrongfully convinced of fraud, all because of a dodgy piece of software the Post Office wanted to cover up?
The Post Office is rightly being slaughtered for this, but surely the problems go further and extend to our courts? I'd have thought you'd have to have pretty solid evidence to convinct someone of fraud, or did they just believe the Post Office? Surely the sheer volume of these prosecutions should have alerted someone that something funny was going on?
