Gaspar Vega Says He Had Nothing to Do With Allegation By Remanded Man

Gaspar Vega

The only man who logically stands to gain from causing Ramon Cervantes Jr. misery two weeks before general elections is his opponent, Gaspar Vega. Vega is a powerhouse in Orange Walk North, but political tides can turn on a dime so there’s never any sure bet. The Cervantes family has drawn the logical conclusion and are looking straight at Vega as they weather this latest crisis. But on Wednesday Vega not surprisingly claimed he had nothing to do with it because he doesn’t operate like that.

 

Gaspar Vega, Deputy Prime Minister

“I have just heard it just now. I don’t know what’s going on.”

 

Reporter

“Okay, now it was thrown out of court, I am hearing, but the allegation by Monchi is that it is pure politics and the suggestion is that it is your camp playing some serious politics.”

 

Gaspar Vega

“I don’t know if I should even answer that. If you notice, throughout my campaign I don’t even try to mention that guy’s name; much less use that type of politics. It is not in my nature.”

 

Reporter

“Now sir, this is an event that has changed your life, in terms of you have been accused of orchestrating murder publicly and it has changed your life. Explain to me how difficult it is to take that load into this election.”

 

Gaspar Vega

“Well, it is difficult mostly with my kids, especially the younger ones because they’ve been attacked. It is the first time that my kids…and when I say kids, twelve year and fourteen year kids get attacked because of politics.”

 

Reporter

“You mean verbally attacked?”

 

Gaspar Vega

“Verbally, send text and play games with them, but I leave it in the hands of God. Yes it’s been heavy and I hope that no one else plays games like those because it is not good for the entire community if we start to make those types of political games and every time we have campaigns, it is common practice.”

 

Reporter

“Sir, if these two persons making this complaint are running again, so to speak, you are saying you do not endorse it or you actually don’t want it to happen”

 

Gaspar Vega

“By no means, no means. I know what I’ve been through being accused of orchestrating or being involved with murder and I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.”

    I run the gangs.

    There ain’t no difference between the two, except pay grade and retirement benefits.

    The government is into murder?

    This man is unscrupulous. He is a coverup also, big drugdealer and everybody in Orange Walk knows it. He should be behind bars! Not political but he is such a dumb ass.
