Northern Caucus – Recall Gaspar Vega

November 14, 2016 – At a special meeting held on Saturday, November 12, 2016 in Ranchito Village, Corozal District the Northern Caucus (NC) of the People’s United Party (PUP) was updated on the process, procedures and requirements for the recall of a Member of the House of Representatives.
After a very spirited discussion where the members were informed of other land scandals during Hon. Gaspar Vega’s tenure as Minister of Natural Resources the PUP Northern Caucus resolved that:
1. Hon. Gaspar Vega should resign immediately from the House of Representatives because the land issues involving his son Andre Vega, Sharon Pitts, his niece Rosita Aragon and compadre Derrick Gillette clearly point to blatant nepotism, cronyism and egregious cases of conflict of interest.
2. The PUP Northern Caucus supports and will endeavor to undertake a successful recall of the Hon. Gaspar Vega in view of the clear evidence of his dishonest acts.
3. The PUP Northern Caucus calls for the immediate disclosure of the Compensation List at the Lands Department.
4. The PUP Northern Caucus calls on the Prime Minister to ensure that monies from other land transactions of similar nature be recovered.
5. The PUP Northern Caucus calls on the Prime Minister to hold accountable the present and past CEO’s of the Ministry of Natural Resources (Accounting Officers), whose signatures appear on the various questionable agreements with Andre Vega, and Sharon Pitts. The Caucus also demands that adequate charges levied against them for their role in these land hustles.
6. The PUP Northern Caucus calls for an independent inquiry/investigation of the Lands Department during the tenure of Hon. Gaspar Vega.
