He indicated that the national cathedral is 100 per cent owned by the state and as such. payment made from the contingency vault was lawful.

“All the payments made for the national cathedral were lawfully done and from the contingency vault under the government obligations vault and not from the contingency fund as alleged by the proponents," he said.
