sum was never transferred to the Ministry of Transport by the government.

According to sources, workers believe that political games are played on their expense and assert that hey will no longer consider the simple assurances from the government enough. OSYPA workers have also heard concerning rumours about the possible requisition of their buses and the involvement of prosecutors in the operation of the organization.
