Solving the "unsolvable"
You cannot fly like an eagle with the wings of a wren.

Seeking the truth
Second Sight Investigations is a leading Forensic Accounting Firm that specialise in dealing with complex fraud and unravelling mysterious phenomena.
Our case with ‘The Post Office’ is now internationally recognised.
In 2012, Second Sight was appointed by Members of Parliament to investigate multiple assertions that the Post Office’s ‘Horizon’ computer system was generating spurious branch shortfalls and that sub-postmasters were being forced to pay the shortfalls and even prosecuted.
Despite attempts to force them to quit, Second Sight’s investigators revealed the ugly truth and the case received huge media attention following the record-breaking ITV drama: 'Mr Bates vs the Post Office' together with its related 'Real Story' documentary.

"Their final report in 2015 summarised 19 'thematic issues' that they had found across all the cases, citing: everything from wholly inadequate training, to the likelihood of improper investigation and prosecution practices that were motivated by a desire to recover losses and that proceeded without the supporting evidence that would normally be needed, and a document that contemplated hiding a system bug, and the ways of correcting its impact, from subpostmasters."
"The findings published in Second Sight’s report for the Post Office included that the Post Office had failed to investigate unexplained losses and was too quick to take legal action against subpostmasters."

"Defying Post Office attempts to frustrate them by blocking access to information such as error logs, Second Sight’s investigators Ron
Warmington and Ian Henderson soon found some real nasties under the stones. An interim report in the summer of 2013 showed that they
had diagnosed the two core issues: faulty IT and the victimisation of sub-postmasters"... "There were two ways Paula Vennells could react to Second Sight’s emerging findings. One was to accept them and open the way to justice for the sub-postmasters. The other was to feign concern while trying to bury what could be an expensive problem."
"Second Sight's final report raised concerns that 'in some circumstances Horizon can be systemically flawed from a user’s perspective'. Second Sight also said it had been unable to complete its investigation, pointing to legal challenges by the Post Office and its refusal to provide some documents."
