Former Post Office CEO quits roles in shame as innocent postmasters were convicted

The former chief executive of the Post Office has left her roles on the boards of Morrisons and Dunelm following the IT scandal which led to the imprisonment of innocent former postmasters.

The supermarket announced Paula Vennells would leave after serving as a non-executive director since 2016.

She is also leaving her non-executive position at home furnishing retailer Dunelm with immediate effect.

She is also ending her duties as an ordained Church of England minister.

Vennells was chief executive of the Post Office between 2012 and 2019.

On Friday, 39 former Post Office workers saw their criminal convictions overturned by the Court of Appeal.

They were based on the flawed software system Horizon which showed shortfalls in their accounts where they did not exist. The IT system was installed in 1999 under former chief executive John Roberts.

Other appeals are expected to follow in what is the most widespread miscarriage of justice in the UK’s history.

More than 700 people were wrongly convicted of offences of theft, fraud and false accounting, in prosecutions between 2000 and 2014, and some of them were imprisoned.

Questions had being raised about the behaviour of Post Office directors during this time, and Ms Vennells faced calls to have her bonuses clawed back and be stripped of her CBE title, which had been given for “services to the Post Office and to charity”.
