THE UK government on Tuesday (14) promised to pay final settlements to Post Office workers wrongly convicted of defrauding their branches due to computer glitches in a major miscarriage of justice.

The scandal saw the Post Office prosecute hundreds running small local branches for alleged false accounting and theft, after its IT system called Horizon reported shortfalls between 2000 and 2014.

Some of the subpostmasters were imprisoned and others failed to find other jobs and lost their homes.
