Vega was also drilled on other matters including that of the law suit to be filed against his political opponent, Ramon Cervantes Jr. for libel for implicating that he was involved in the murder of his father. And while the DPM has categorically denied that allegation, he spoke very few words on the matter.

“You said it, Rodwell Williams already send the letter so there is very little that I can say it is in his hands and I said what I had to say and I just will leave it there.”

“Do you think it is irresponsible for Mr Cervantes to do this along with the media houses that broadcasted the event?”

“Like I said I have said what I had to say and the rest the Attorney will take care of it.”

“Do you think this has affected politically?”

“Ah No I don’t think so”


Reporter


“Sir, are you concern about your own personal security, you have mentioned it in your statement something like this have created different thought in all people’s heads, is it a concern for yourself and your family?”

 

Gaspar Vega – Deputy Prime Minister


“I said it on the statement that I made and I meant what I said on the political statement.”


Reporter


“From a political perspective, are you threatened by Ramon Monchie Cervantes?”


Gaspar Vega – Deputy Prime Minister


“No it has not changed”


Since we were on the political bus in the interview, Vega was asked for his response on the changes in the PUP, particularly the Orange Walk East constituency.


Gaspar Vega – Deputy Prime Minister


“From the very first time that Aragon started this campaign I realize that we have a very good candidate and I am certain that regardless of who run there we will have victory come next general election will be the United Democratic Party.”


Vega also spoke to the media about that defrauding claim made by his brother, Eduardo Vega who entered in a land agreement with Chinese businessman Tammy Tang from Santa Elena Cayo who came up short on the agreement.

 

Gaspar Vega – Deputy Prime Minister


“No I don’t know the details just that I would like to mention though that he bought that property in 2002 and he acquired it through Atlantic Bank so the Minister Gaspar Veg did not give him that land.”
