Direct payments to Kyrgyzstan from Transit Center at Manas reach $151 mln in 2011 -- public supervisory board.

Direct payments to Kyrgyzstan from the Transit Center at Manas amounted to $151 million in 2011, the public supervisory board said after the meeting with Transit Center Commander James Jacobson. $60 million was paid as rent fees; over $800,000 were spent for humanitarian aid; expenses of military in cafes, museums and stores amount to $1.5 million, said in the message of the public supervisory board, reported Tazabek. Public supervisory board executive secretary Temirbek Shabdanaliev said many people have questions about activities of the Transit Center. "The main reason is lack of information. Rent fees, fuel supplies and transportation of cargoes from the Transit Center to Afghanistan require a particular attention. There is no information on conditions of tenders for providers of services or whether numerous contractors of the Transit Center pay taxes. All these issues are open and we want to examine them," he said.
