People have been UN-accounted for. If they're unaccounted how do you know they exist?

ESFRS try to improve their image when they are still hurting the widows and families.

Or they can just pay up, seeing as they are the ones who are liable for that money, NOT Zurich, as you were told earlier.

You really are incredibly thick Stevo. ESFRS are liable but their insurers, Zurich, indemnify their liability. The insurers don't want to pay out. Is that simple enough for you? Probably not.....
