A former Post Office govt was condemned for utilizing “word soup” jargon by a annoyed barrister throughout the Horizon IT inquiry on Friday 26 April.

On her second day of giving proof, Angela van den Bogerd was requested concerning the instances of a number of particular person subpostmasters and their branches.

Her response, when questioned on the specifics of settlement negotiations with Martin Griffiths, drew a annoyed outburst from Jason Beer KC, lead counsel to the inquiry.

“What does that mean? That’s just word soup,” he mentioned, repeating a part of Ms van den Bogerd’s reply again to her.
