Former UK Post Office GC , Jane MacLeod, Revelead By Press To Be Back In Sydney

A FORMER Post Office lawyer who refused to appear at the Horizon scandal inquiry has been tracked down by The Sun on Sunday to her £2 million home in Australia.

Jane MacLeod, 62, was lead counsel during Alan Bates’s High Court battle against the organisation.

She rejected the chance to appear in-person or via video link for the crucial inquiry – even after officials offered to pay for her flights and accommodation.

Instead she has submitted a lengthy witness statement in which she apologised to Horizon victims for taking decisions which prolonged their “distress” .

But insists she has still seen no evidence that the software had been misused to create bogus losses.

Mrs MacLeod’s chic modern townhouse in Sydney is complete with heated rooftop swimming pool.
