    I see a question mark after "honest". I am sure that you not questionning my honesty?
    Anyway, I don't hold the purse strings.

    I was not on the steering committee but just helping as consultant. I did my best to get these bills paid but I had no locus standi and it seems that once the affair is over and especially once the ministry has changed ,oblivion sets in.

    I suggest you sue. Then they will move.
