Source: Die Linke “Minister Scheuer not only burned tens of millions of euros in budget funds with the toll debacle. In order to whip through the absurd CSU toll as quickly as possible, he blatantly violated the law. Mr Scheuer has always been the wrong choice, now he is completely intolerable, ”explains Jörg Cezanne, chairman of the DIE LINKE parliamentary group in the investigative committee on car tolls, on the occasion of today’s interrogation by the incumbent Federal Minister of Transport. Cezanne continues: “In the run-up to the meeting, internal minutes of the operating consortium were made public, which corroborate the serious allegations of the Federal Audit Office. There is now no question that the Ministry of Transport has agreed in secret meetings with the only remaining bidder on the toll contract – a consortium made up of Kapsch and Eventim – special conditions that are contrary to procurement and budgetary law. Since statements by Volker Schneble, the managing director of the dismissed toll operator, also corroborate the suspicion that the transport minister lied to parliament, Chancellor Merkel has to act and remove Chaos minister Scheuer from his position The committee members of the Union and SPD caused a scandal by delaying the questioning of the transport minister by summoning another witness at short notice. It was to be expected that media interference would distract from the transport minister’s misconduct. But this approach contradicts the previous collegial approach in the committee and the coalition factions go decidedly too far with it. “
