Prime Minister Not Aware of Andre Vega Haulover Land Deal

Dean Barrow

On Thursday night, the Prime Minister was asked about the scandalous hustle. His reaction was captured in less than thirty seconds.

 

Prime Minister Dean Barrow

“No, no, no, yuh see, no man. Then yuh the use emotive and judgmental language. No man. We are here to talk about the B.N.T.U. and what happened today. Any questions you have about that, please, you can no doubt get in touch with the Deputy Prime Minister. That’s not something that I am prepared to discuss. That’s not something I have yet gotten a report from the current Minister of Lands, so, please, I can’t deal with that.”

 

In revisiting this story, we found another instance which shows that paying compensation for private land has become the modus operandi at the ministry. In February 2012, land was parcelled off within a designated reserve in the Placencia area.  A total of four parcels located on two islands within the lagoon, went to Vega’s girlfriend, Dominique Gomez six days prior to the March seventh General Elections.   Others who got into the deal at rock bottom prices were Douglas Usher, a close friend of Andre Vega and Bertran Brown, an employee of the Minister, as well as Dorian Pakeman, the Director of the Press Office. But following strong public outcry, Cabinet reversed the land title and paid out a compensation package of one hundred and fifty thousand dollars.  We note that Pakeman is yet to be charged for hitting and killing a Carmelita resident. A lab test confirmed there were levels of cocaine in his blood and that in a very strange twist, a huge amount of ethanol was found in blood samples of the deceased, Dean Dawson.

    Please also investigate the name of Jesus Gaspar Santos who was also involved in taking people land (Corozal, San Pedro, Orange Walk) and selling and transferring to others.

    Santos was highly connected to Vegas right hand by surname Alamilla known to be owner of ALBION bus line.
