3.       How come that the Ministry of Transport first wrote to the Ministry of Finance to pay Smarttys on 8th July 2015, and then on 15th July 2015 wrote to Smarttys to provide a Price Quote, citing consultations “with the office of the President”?

4.       How did the Ministry of Finance approve “urgent” payment to Smarttys on 23rd July 2015 without even seeing a Contract and Procurement Approval?
