Still No Response from Vega on Haulover Compensation

Andre Vega

Gaspar Vega stepped down as a member of the Barrow cabinet on October seventeenth.  His resignation came amid scandals involving his son Andre Vega and attorney Sharon Pitts in separate, dubious land transactions that saw government forking over significant sums of money to them as compensation for land that was held privately near the Haulover Bridge. It’s now more than a month since the Government asked Andre and Pitts to return the money; almost a million dollars is to be paid back to government coffers. But it hasn’t happened. Pitts has indicated that she will do so by December fifteenth through her attorney, Hubert Elrington. In the case of Andre, he has not been heard from. Tonight we have learnt that the Solicitor General is preparing to take legal action before of the end of the year to get back the taxpayers’ money from Andre.
