Ep 24 - Meet the Ministers

Episode 24,   Dec 02, 2022, 07:53 PM

Four more former Secretaries of State gave evidence in the final week of Phase 2 of the Post Office Horizon IT inquiry as did former General Secretary of the National Federation of Subpostmasters, whose evidence was jaw-dropping. Colin Baker MBE told a Subpostmasters' barrister she shouldn't be asking what his organisation was up to whilst the Post Office was prosecuting his members over dodgy accounting data. Elsewhere Alan Johnson spoke about his days as a postie being watched by the feared Post Office Investigation Department goons and his disgust at the way Subpostmasters were prosecuted. He said if the NFSP had told him what was going on he would have put a stop to it immediately.
