But with the project not taking off, we have issued them a show-cause notice warning that they would be blacklisted,”
Loretta Lewis, a representative from Being Human, said in an email statement. “The Being Human Foundation has certain mandatory requirements which need to be included in contracts. There were discussions around those which ultimately did not materialise. There was no formal contract/MoU signed at all,”
