By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Officials in Mexico are investigating former President Enrique Pena Nieto for alleged money laundering, illicit enrichment, and illegal international transfers, Reuters report.
Pena Nieto served as President of Mexico from 2012 to 2016.
He is reportedly the person identified as “Enrique P” in a statement from the attorney general’s office (FGR), the report says.
Pena Nieto had previously denied any wrongdoing when reports of an investigation by Mexico’s anti-money laundering unit emerged last month.
But the statement issued today said that authorities were “developing investigation procedures” into various federal crimes.
The investigations into money laundering and illegal international transfers stemmed from complaints by tax authorities.
Last month, Mexico’s anti-money laundering unit requested that the Attorney General’s office investigate millions of dollars worth of money transfers abroad addressed to Pena Nieto.
