Prime Minister Briceño says that besides an investigation into questionable transactions at the Lands Department, an investigation will also be launched in the Ministry of Works. In recent days, there have been allegations of massive corruption and abuse at Works.

“Well I think that is for the cabinet to decide once we sit and we start working. We are going to be able to then sit down and decide the areas that we have to look. Certainly Lands Department is number along with the Ministry of Works. Those two stand out more than any other ministry where we probably have to do some form of investigation and it may even end up in a criminal investigation.”
