Post Office on trial

I have been following through Private Eye the alleged frauds by sub-postmasters on the Post Office. I had not commented before, because I was told that a local man who was affected had actually pleaded guilty to "false accounting". However, an interview on Radio Wales yesterday revealed that at least one Anglesey sub-postmaster had been persuaded by his legal advisers to make a guilty plea, even though he was convinced he was innocent, in the hope of receiving a light or suspended sentence. (He was cruelly let down, having to spend part of his sentence in Liverpool's notorious Walton gaol.) Perhaps this was true of the others who were convicted.

So I am now fully supportive of the Justice for Sub-Postmasters Alliance's campaign and will be following Nick Wallis's reports with interest.
