Post Office / Horizon scandal

The Post Office Horizon scandal is the most widespread miscarriage of justice the CCRC has ever seen.

If you believe that you have been wrongly convicted because of problems with the Horizon computer system, you can consider challenging your conviction.

While some people can apply directly to the courts (see the ‘Challenging a Horizon-related conviction’ section), the CCRC has to-date referred 76 such convictions to the appeal courts – resulting in 63 convictions being overturned to-date.
