Berlin (dpa) - From the point of view of the Federal Court of Audit, the federal government must control more strictly what the railways with the billions make out of the public purse. The economic use of funds is "not hedged," according to a new report by financial controllers. Recently, the authority had drawn attention to the difficult financial situation of the largest German state-owned company. The railway alone has a financial gap of three billion euros this year - despite rising passenger numbers. The criticism of the Court of Auditors rejected the train.
