By BBN Staff: Attorney at law, Sharon Pitts, and Andre Vega, son of former Deputy Prime Minister, Gaspar Vega, are yet to return the monies government paid out to them in a controversial land transaction that lacked much grace.

The Government of Belize wrote them at the end of October requesting that they each returned the $400,000 each they obtained after government acquired lands from them.

Despite being told several times that the lands were previously privately owned, the duo insisted they be given the land and were granted the parcels during Minister Gaspar Vega’s reign as Minister of Natural Resources.

However, when the scandal broke, Minister Vega resigned from Cabinet with immediate effect although he remains the Area Representative for the Orange Walk constituency.

BBN made numerous efforts to check if the monies were returned. However, we are still waiting for the CEO in Natural Resources, the Attorney General and the Minister of Natural Resources to return our call.
