Embattled rep has no answers for land scam

Gaspar Vega

The Orange Walk North area representative made his first televised interview in several months during Wednesday’s protests, but was careful to skirt the issue of activities at the Ministry of Natural Resources. As we have reported, he appeared to balance whatever irregularities have been observed in the scads of documents released to the press since his resignation last year with the good he did for small families. But asked squarely how it is that lands bought by others ended up in his own family’s hands, Vega had no answers for the press.

 

Reporter

“Sir, are you not ashamed of you name and your legacy? Aren’t you ashamed to show your face in public?” (Shouting from crowd)

 

Gaspar Vega, Area Rep., Orange Walk North

“I will not answer that. I will not answer that, okay? I will not answer that.” (Shouting continues)

 

Reporter

“Sir, with all due respect, people being given land is one thing; but when you spoke about them doing whatever they want with it, it has turned out that a lot of that land ended up in the hands of your own relatives.” (Shouting continues)

 

Gaspar Vega, Area Rep., Orange Walk North

“Wait. Enough.” (Walks away into crowd)

    He has nothing to say because all his deed has come to light. What you see is what it is.

    We shouldn’t feel too badly about his refusal to speak. If he did speak, it probably wouldn’t be the truth anyhow!
