UK Prime Minister Promises Reaction to Post Office Scandal Impacting British Indians

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak announced that the government is examining the compensation procedure in connection with an accounting scam that falsely charged hundreds of sub-postmasters—many of whom were of Indian descent—with fraud.
In response to questions about the historic scandal involving a malfunctioning IT system named Horizon that dates back to the late 1990s, Sunak said in an interview with the BBC that his minister of justice is “looking at” ways to expedite the process of reversing erroneous convictions and paying compensation.

Many of the affected sub-postmasters have received millions in compensation from the government, which officially controls Post Office Ltd., but many more are still waiting years for payments.
