Another Allegation of Land Fraud Involving Rene Montero

Eddie De La Rosa

In another case, De La Rosa shares the story of an individual who later found out that his information was used to acquire a piece of land.  He approached De La Rosa, who at the time was also under Montero’s employ, and asked him to relay a message to the former Minister of Works.  He reportedly needed a job opportunity through Montero or else he wouldn’t relinquish the land title.
