wilbertVery reliable sources have indicated to us that there will soon be a major shake-up inside the Ministry of Lands. Reports are that the Deputy Registrar of Lands, Baroni Hernandez, is preparing to exit the Ministry along with the Commissioner of Lands Wilbert Vallejos.


So what’s the big deal? Firstly, Hernandez is a relative of former Minister of Natural Resources Gaspar Vega – one of those family members who was strategically placed in the Ministry when Vega took charge in 2008. Vallejos has been Lands Commissioner throughout Vega’s term, and has been in the center of many controversies and scandals – a key player in what has often been described as a hotbed of corruption.


Our sources say the decision to remove Hernandez from the Ministry comes from Cabinet, following their meeting last week.


We are also told that other senior Lands officials are also on the chopping block, but we’ll have more to report in tomorrow’s newscast.
