Post Office Lawyer Jarnail Singh is challenged by Jason Beer KC on what basis did the Post Office have power to issue CAUTIONS to subpostmasters at the Post Office Inquiry. He references a code that doesn't cover cautions:
To: Rishi Sunak and UK Government
Hold Fujitsu to account for Post Office scandal
- Do not give new contracts to Fujitsu
- Where possible, scrap existing Fujitsu contracts
- Use your power to force Fujitsu to pay compensation to victims
Why is this important?
The firm at the heart of the Post Office scandal continues to be handed numerous government contracts paid for by millions of taxpayers money despite its role in the Post Office Horizon Scandal. It’s even been named a “key strategic supplier”.
No one at Fujitsu has been held accountable, even after it was confirmed the accounting errors were caused by the computer system. In fact, Fujitsu has continued to win government jobs worth millions, as recently as last month, despite calls for the firm to be frozen out of any new contracts. They were even awarded a £36 million contract extension to keep running their Horizon Post Office contract until 2025.
Enough is enough, MP’s from all sides are now saying Fujitsu should not be handed any more Government contracts after the Horizon Scandal. Let’s show the public agrees.
