Scores of policyholders are attending the ResLife Town Hall Meeting at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre.

It is standing room only as they seek answers about their investment in the failed CLICO companies here in Barbados.

Under the debt restructuring by the Mia Mottley administration, payment were delayed, and in some cases, the value of payouts slashed.

Members of the audience have been posing questions to Minister in the Ministry of Finance Ryan Straughn and ResLife chief executive officer Cheryl Senhouse.

Also on the panel are chairman Tony Hoyos and National Insurance Scheme director Ian Carrington.

The moderator is David Ellis.

The meeting can be viewed on the Facebook page of the Barbados Government Information Service, and those who are unable to attend can pose questions there. (SAT)
