Fujitsu says morally obliged to compensate wronged UK postmasters

16 Jan 2024
Fujitsu's European director, Paul Patterson, acknowledged the company's moral obligation to compensate UK postmasters wrongly convicted due to glitches in its Horizon accounting software. The software errors led to around 700 wrongful theft and false accounting convictions from 1999 to 2005, resulting in jail time, bankruptcy, loss of homes, health issues, and even suicides. Patterson apologized for Fujitsu's role in the UK's biggest miscarriage of justice and expressed willingness to discuss compensation with the government. The UK government has set aside £1 billion for compensation and may re-examine Fujitsu's government contracts. The Post Office's CEO, Nick Read, described the situation as complex, while Scotland's senior legal officer, Dorothy Bain, apologized for the miscarriages of justice and is reviewing cases affected by the unreliable evidence.

Fujitsu says morally obliged to compensate wronged UK postmasters

16 Jan 2024
Fujitsu's European director Paul Patterson acknowledged the company's moral obligation to compensate UK postmasters wrongly convicted due to glitches in its Horizon accounting software. The issue, which led to theft and false accounting convictions for about 700 postmasters between 1999 and 2005, has been termed the UK's biggest miscarriage of justice. Some postmasters faced jail, bankruptcy, or severe health issues, with four suicides and dozens dying before exoneration. Fujitsu, a major IT service provider with global revenues of around $27 billion, is expected to discuss compensation contributions with the government. The UK government has set aside £1 billion for compensation and may hold Fujitsu accountable pending a public inquiry. The Post Office's CEO Nick Read described the situation as complex, while Scotland's top legal officer Dorothy Bain apologized for the miscarriages of justice and is reviewing cases potentially affected by the Horizon system.

Sylvester, a three-year-old lion who had previously escaped from Karoo National Park in South Africa and killed 30 livestock animals, was facing euthanasia. However, a decision has been made to relocate him to Addo Elephant Park, which is nearly 250 miles away. At Addo, Sylvester will be introduced to two young lionesses who have been surviving on their own since their mother died from a snake bite. The hope is that Sylvester will bond with these lionesses and establish himself as the pride male, thus giving him a new lease on life and a chance to contribute to the lion population.

Julius Malema, the leader of South Africa's opposition party Economic Freedom Fighters, is under investigation for treason by The Hawks, a special police unit. This follows his comments on a television interview where he suggested that the government, led by the African National Congress (ANC), could be overthrown by violence if the people's patience ran out. The police minister, Nathi Nhleko, confirmed the opening of a high treason case against Malema, while the ANC condemned his statements as incitement to violence.

South Africa's President Zuma faces the possibility of reinstated corruption charges related to a $5 billion arms deal after the High Court in Pretoria ruled that the previous decision to drop the charges was irrational. Zuma's former financial adviser, Schabir Shaik, was convicted of fraud and corruption in connection with the same deal by the Durban High Court in 2005. The charges against Zuma had been dropped in 2009 by the then-chief prosecutor, Mokotedi Mpshe, which allowed Zuma to run for the presidency. However, Judge Aubrey Ledwaba has now criticized that decision, opening the door for the 783 charges of corruption, fraud, and racketeering to be reinstated against President Zuma.

Thirty-three lions have been rescued from circuses in South America and are being relocated to Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary in South Africa. The rescue was conducted by Animal Defenders International in collaboration with officials targeting wildlife trafficking. The lions, many of whom have suffered injuries such as loss of an eye, blindness, broken teeth, or declawing, were kept in deplorable conditions in cages on trucks. The airlift of these lions to the sanctuary, where they will be quarantined, represents the largest operation of its kind.
