Former Sub-postmistress Rejects Apology from Ex-Post Office Boss after Wrongful Conviction and Imprisonment during Pregnancy

A former sub-postmistress named Seema Misra, who was wrongly jailed while pregnant in 2010, has rejected an apology from a former Post Office boss, David Smith.
Smith had congratulated his team for their work in Misra's conviction in an email, which he later acknowledged as "poorly thought through." Misra, who was eight weeks pregnant at the time, was sentenced to 15 months in prison.

Despite Smith's apology during the Post Office scandal inquiry, Misra stated that she cannot accept it.

A woman named Mrs. Misra was wrongfully convicted and sent to prison on her eldest son's 10th birthday, four-and-a-half months before she gave birth to her second son.

She was accused of stealing £70,000 from her Post Office branch, but the conviction was based on a faulty computer system called Horizon.

Mrs. Misra had seen an apology email from the Post Office regarding the issue before, but seeing it again only made her angrier.

She served her time wearing an electronic tag and now demands an apology from the Post Office for the distress caused to her and her sons on their special day.

Over 700 sub-postmasters and postmistresses were prosecuted for theft and false accounting due to the same faulty computer system between 1999 and 2015.

Hundreds of people who were wrongly convicted and spent time in prison, lost their jobs, businesses, and homes, or even died while awaiting justice, are expected to have their names cleared under new legislation.

However, only 37 of these individuals have received full financial compensation to date.

Some were convicted and served prison sentences, while others were financially ruined and suffered other losses.
