"It is public knowledge who has stolen state land in Juan Hombrón" says former former director of the titling authority, Cadastre.
Publio Cortes, came forward after the disclosure of a video recording with alleged details of the granting of land to the family of Minister of the Presidency, Demetrio Papadimitriu. The video is appearing on YouTube.
Cortes reportedly blocked the land transfers before being replaced in office by Anabelle Villamonte who is now facing charges in connection with titling in Paitilla while Director of Anati. She was recently acquitted in the Juan Hombrón scandal, but the ruling has been appealed.
Cortes called for the return to the nation of 54.3 hectares located on the coast of Cocle.
