Dear Post Office Limited,
In the light of the following quote "Mr Greenhow also points out that 44% of those charged and prosecuted between 1999 and 2015 were “outside the scope” of the Fed. And we can see thanks to an FoI request, that indeed 102 Post Office employees outside the Fed were indeed prosecuted between 1999 and 2013, but not whether there was any Horizon connection. " Can you say how many of prosecutions made between 1999 and 2013, that relied on Horizon evidence, were against Post Office Ltd employess and how many were against subpostmasters or their employees
