What will the new Attorney General do about Pitts and Vega?
Posted: Tuesday, January 17, 2017. 2:47 p.m. CST.
By BBN Staff: Andre Vega, the son of former Cabinet Minister, Gaspar Vega along with attorney Sharon Pitts are yet to return tax payers’ dollars after acquiring owned land and receiving large government compensation during Vega’s reign over the Lands Department.
The two were ordered to return the $400,000 that they each had received but to date they have not done so. As a result, the Solicitor General was advised to file a suit against them.
When the media spoke to the newly appointed Attorney General, Michael Peyrefitte, he said that he will continue the matter but refused to share further details.
“Well there is no intention from me to discontinue the matter. The matter was filed. I won’t comment on the merits or demerits of the case itself. I will refrain from ever trying to discuss cases or try them in public. So the case is there. It’s present. I believe a claim has been filed and so then we go from there. That’s all I would like to say on the matter for now…,” he told the media.
BBN will continue to follow this story.
