Mediator to be Selected in Sharon Pitts Case

Nigel Hawke

The case of attorney Sharon Pitts with the government over improper compensation for a land purchase is headed to mediation. Pitts and Hilmar Alamilla paid small sums for adjoining properties totaling just over an acre of land near the Haulover Bridge, at mile five between the Caribbean Sea and the Philip Goldson Highway; Alamilla’s portion was later sold to Andre Vega for fifteen thousand dollars. But the Government took it back saying it was private land and compensated Vega and Pitts to the handsome tune of four hundred thousand dollars each. Solicitor General Nigel Hawke says a mediator will soon be appointed to begin the process of compromise.

“We’re now in the stage of preparing the list of persons that we can exchange with the other side to see who we will choose as mediator for the case. So we’re in that stage.”

 

Lands Department employees were not able to stop the transaction despite informing then-Minister Gaspar Vega that the land was already privately owned.

    I can easily mediate this case myself here and now. Pitts should give the money back and stop being so greedy. Case is now closed.
