Why can’t the ACB and Police arrest the Cashgate suspects. These thugs will do all they can to destroy evidence. Lock them up and continue investigations!

So they are risking customers’ lives by opening the branch without conducting investigations on the cause and effects of fire. Potential risks after a fire are radiation, chemical imbalance, structural damage, pollution, faults that may cause another fire in the building etc.
