Today, two appeals against convictions relating to the Post Office scandal were before the Lady Chief Justice in the Northern Ireland Court of Appeal.

During the Hearing, the PPS undertook to write to Madden & Finucane Solicitors within two weeks to indicate whether the PPS will consent or object to the appeals.

The cases are next listed in the Court of Appeal on 10th October 2022.

Michael Madden, solicitor of Madden & Finucane, said:

“Many Postmasters caught up in the Post Office Horizon scandal will find the process of applying to quash their convictions very difficult.

“We are glad that our two clients have taken the first steps toward clearing their names and we eagerly await to see whether the PPS will consent to our application to quash the convictions.”
