Another step forward today. 61 convictions were referred to the Criminal Cases Review Commission. Post Office said that few, if any, would be referred to the courts for appeal. In fact 39 have been referred and no decision has been taken on the other 22, with CCRC needing to do further work on those. The basis for the referrals is that the prosecutions could have been an abuse of process.

Another 7 convictions sent to appeal by the CCRC. Of the outstanding 14, the CCRC has rejected 7 and is continuing to investigate the rest.

Post Office has engaged solicitors to review 900 (yes, nine hundred - that isn't a typo) convictions that may have used Horizon evidence.

The CCRC has called for a review of the rules around private prosecutions. They say, "in the context of the Post Office's combined status as victim, investigator and prosecutor of the offences in question – the CCRC considers that there are reasons for significant concern as to whether POL at all times acted as a thorough and objective investigator and prosecutor, ensuring that all reasonable lines of inquiry were explored". The CCRC say they are firmly of the view that a formal review is needed into how and when it should be permissible for prosecutions to be brought when the prosecutor is also the victim and investigator.
