Speaking on Joy FM’s Newsfile Saturday, Mr Adongo said the $2 billion was issued with a callable feature which can be redeemed at any point in time.

“It may be tempting to say that the apparent attempt to manufacture some form of integrity deficit is generally borne out of a lack of understanding of the actual process on the part of the manufacturers. But, that may be deemed too charitable, considering the CVs of some of the personalities involved,” he said.
