'Post Office Horizon Public Inquiry'

Profiling the Post Office

As a specialist in attracting bad publicity, the Post Office kept up its record when the assiduous Eleanor Shaikh recently prised out of it - via a Freedom of Information Request - a document starkly revealing how the institution racially profiled the individuals whose lives it ruined in the now well reported Horizon IT Scandal. 

The Post Office and Lee Castleton

The Post Office Horizon Public Inquiry has re-started. Institutions under the spotlight are giving evidence. 

So this seems a good time to pull ourselves back to what the Horizon scandal concerns: people.

One of those people, one of the hundreds of individuals running sub-Post Offices whose lives were ruined through no fault of their own, is Lee Castleton. The account that follows reflects his submissions to the Inquiry under an Impact Witness Statement from May 2022, and has been prepared with his approval.
