Mohammed Aslam

Year conviction was overturned:

Mohammed Aslam was a sub postmaster who was investigated on the basis of a shortfall in his accounts. When interviewed about shortfalls in his accounts he stated that he was aware that there was a shortfall and covered it up with false declarations. He pleaded guilty to three counts of false accounting at Newport Magistrates’ Court in 2007 and was sentenced to 60 hours of unpaid work and a £300 fine. His conviction was quashed when it became clear that evidence used to convict him resulted from a faulty computer system (Horizon).
