By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The Ministry of Natural Resources is currently examining land documents following the allegations by murder victim Ricardo Borja just days before he was murdered.
The leaked recordings revealed that Borja and others were involved in land fraud with the assistance of people within the Lands department.
During an interview with 7News Belize, Minister of Natural Resources, Cordel Hyde said that while there is an active police investigation, the Lands department is also reviewing instruments.
“We’ve gotten some advice from the Attorney General’s ministry, and in terms of our own internal work we are looking at all the instruments inside our ministry, examining those very closely to see all the instruments that may have involved a participation from this deceased, and to see whether we uncover anything about that investigation or that examination. Well, I don’t want to call it an investigation because the police does investigations, that examination is ongoing so once we discover anything that’s amiss there are penalties for that but that’s where we are right now,” Hyde said.
Hyde said that the Lands Department is also looking at their own internal processed and how to “reduce the chances for this kind of wrongdoing or this kind of allegation again.”
