Gareth Jenkins not called as a witness in GLO

The request was refused by Post Office Limited.

Dear Post Office Limited,You were asked in 2018 why Gareth Jenkins was not called as a witness in the Horizon trial.At the time you said youdidn't call him as a witness because you already had Torstein Godeseth lined up and given some of the trials Mr Jenkins had been involved with were now subject of reviews by the Criminal Cases Review Commission, it wasn't appropriate to call him."Can you confirm this is stillthe reason for not subjecting MrJenkins to cross examination and if you were asked the same question in 2022 as to his non-appearance would provide the same answer?

Yours faithfully,
