Public TRANSPORT operation is fighting against Bschiss charge

The charge is steep: In the case of transport in Lucerne and operated, it should be a sub-Bschiss. This is the "glance, reported:" on Friday as the first Medium. Explosive: With Norbert Schmassmann a man the Director of the transport companies, and has served as President of the industry organisation of the Swiss transport company is calculated. He tried to smooth the waters. What was only partly successful.

According to initial media requests last Friday, the transport authority of Luzern (VBL) had a first, extremely scarce Communiqué published. The VBL checked "jointly" with the purchaser of the transport services, the Verkehrsverbund Luzern (VVL), which grants to the company. Because the transport companies in the media were partially misrepresented, invited the company to a hastily arranged Media event.

Some of the issues Director Schmassmann and VBL confirmed-Board of Directors President Yvonne Hunkeler: The Verkehrsverbund Luzern as the purchaser of the transport services demands of the transport back to operated million. In addition, the VVL want to go over the books with respect to the holding structure of the VBL are constructed.

"In any way" was not the case with the events of the post car comparable to that, said Board of Directors President Yvonne Hunkeler.

there is a Parallel to post-car-case: Also, the Post subsidiary, was organized as a Holding company. Apparently there is now a dispute about what services were charged to the parent Holding company and which is the daughter company. What exactly is the reason for the claim is over several million Swiss francs, wanted to run, neither Schmassmann still Hunkeler closer. What was clear: There had been no criminal actions. "In no way" be the case with the events of the post car comparable to that, said Hunkeler.

The transport Association Verkehrsverbund Luzern itself took in the aftermath of the event for the exact reason of the million demand position: "the investigations showed that in the VBL, a difference between actual interest costs and internally allocated imputed interest inventory", say it in a message. In other words, the transport companies seem to have had lower interest costs than you have provided to your Client.

Holding approved

The Lucerne transport companies to wash in addition, with respect to the holding structure of their hands: The company had the structure in 2012, the Federal office for the traffic approval, and the settlement had been exposed in the studied period, from 2010 to 2017 never.

In the aftermath of the post-car-scandal-of-the Verkehrsverbund Luzern reviewed the respective reports in these years and came to a different conclusion. 16 million Swiss francs are to pay back the transport companies because of this. "We put these claims into question", had Hunkeler know. For comparison, The total subsidies in the examined eight years amounted to 200 million francs, most of it – Schmassmann language of 98.5 percent – came from Lucerne, and the Rest by the Federal government.

Also on Monday, all open questions were clarified. Questions were Schmassmann in his function as President of the Association of public transport, not he answered. When the results of the current investigation, is unclear. The political pressure, the case clean is to elucidate, however, is available: The Lucerne SP was already active, and calls for answers.
