Support for Susan Knight – St Keverne Post Office

Posted on: 6th August 2013

West Cornwall MP, Andrew George, will be seeking a full apology and compensation for his constituent, Susan Knight – St Keverne Post Office – who was found not guilty of false accounting at Truro Crown Court yesterday.  He will also call for her to be offered her old job back.

Mr George said:  “This whole episode has been devastating and very unfair for Susan.  She is not the only sub-postmistress to have been falsely accused in this way.

“The Post Office clearly has a serious problem with its Horizon computer accounting system.  They now need to deal with this rather than put their sub-postmasters and sub-postmistresses through the kind of treatment Susan has endured.  A group of MPs and I have called for an Independent review of the Post Office’s handling of this situation.”
