Paul Harris and instructed Counsel, Sam Stein QC of Nexus Chambers are delighted for our clients Scott Darlington, Rubbina Shaheen and Peter Holmes (deceased) represented by his wife Marion Holmes that the Post Office have indicated that they do not oppose their appeals against conviction.

Paul Harris, Senior Partner, of Edward Fail, Bradshaw & Waterson instructed Sam Stein QC of Nexus Chambers.
