The syndicate cross-references all complaints and invoices received with previous appraisal values, stating that the receipts received had appraisal values ranging between 50­–70 percent.

Allan stated that these values are “unacceptable” and “intolerable”, and are beyond what vendors and individuals are able to bear.

The syndicate, he added, “would not stand silent under the direct threat to vendors”.

The syndicate is expected to announce its position on the topic on Sunday after a board meeting, he added.
