Compensation for the victims of the Post Office software scandal

Yesterday the government launched a new government compensation scheme for postmasters, ensuring the postmasters who were unfairly accused of fraud to to inexcusable failures by the Post Office are compensated fully and fairly. 

  • Whilst no such scheme can take away the years of distress, the postmasters who have suffered over the post office horizon scandal deserve to be fairly compensated. 
  • So the government has announced a further compensation scheme targeted at the postmasters who brought and won the landmark High Court case against the Post Office, ensuring those who uncovered the miscarriage of justice receive the compensation they deserve.
  • This will delivering compensation to victims of a terrible injustice, righting a historic wrong and giving people confidence that the UK will always act to ensure people are treated fairly.
