Paula Vennells: I Do Wonder What God You Worship

Paula Vennells speaking at the start of the inquiry saying 'I would just like to say - and I'm grateful for the opportunity to do this in person.'

Paul Vennells was the CEO of the Post Office from 2012 to 2019, during which time the Post Office scandal unfolded. The scandal involved hundreds of sub-postmasters who were wrongly accused of theft and false accounting due to issues with the Post Office’s Horizon IT system. Many innocent people faced financial ruin, criminal charges, and even imprisonment as a result.

About Sir Allen Bates, it’s important to clarify that Sir Anthony Hooper, a former judge, led an independent inquiry into the scandal and concluded that the Post Office had shown “extraordinary complacency” in its handling of the issue. The inquiry found that the Post Office had aggressively pursued sub-postmasters based on faulty evidence from the Horizon system and had failed to properly investigate or address concerns raised by those affected.

While feedback from individuals like Sir Allen Bates might have highlighted issues, it seems that within the Post Office hierarchy during Vennells’ tenure, there was a systemic failure to acknowledge or act on these warnings effectively. This failure ultimately led to significant harm to numerous innocent individuals and severe damage to trust in the Post Office’s operations.

In April 2021, after the extent of the scandal became widely known, Paul Vennells publicly apologized for the distress caused to those affected, although she (Vennells) had left the Post Office in 2019.
