Postmaster who suffered mental health breakdown sends message to Rishi Sunak: ‘No more broken promises’

A former postmaster who suffered a mental health breakdown after being accused of stealing £11,000 by the Post Office has sent a message to Rishi Sunak as a minister called for those behind the Horizon scandal to be jailed.

Speaking to Good Morning Britain on Monday (15 January), Jess Kaur pleaded: “Let us move on with our lives... No more broken promises. Deadlines are set for a reason and they’ve always been broken.”

It came after Post Office minister Kevin Hollinrake said on Friday it would be the “ultimate deterrent” to prosecute and lock up those responsible.
