Mexico’s Former President Is Under Investigation on Allegations of Financial Abuse (The New York Times).
By JAMES C. McKINLEY Jr.SEPT. 28, 2007
MEXICO CITY, Sept. 27 — If former President Vicente Fox thought his retirement would be peaceful at his ranch house, swimming in the pool or strolling by the artificial lake and sumptuous gardens, then events this week have proved him wrong.
Congress started an investigation into his personal finances after a former campaign aide charged that Mr. Fox had used campaign money to renovate the house.
Mr. Fox contends that every peso spent on the renovation came from his own pocket, a close adviser, Rob Allyn, said Thursday.
The accusations from Lino Korrodi, the finance chairman for Mr. Fox’s 2000 campaign, with photographs of the former president’s relatively luxurious ranch published recently in a magazine, have fueled speculation among politicians about where Mr. Fox got the money.
The frenzy has reached a fever pitch in Congress, where members of opposition parties have pushed through a measure to set up a commission to investigate Mr. Fox’s finances, a move unheard of in Mexico, where former presidents are generally treated with tremendous deference.
The Previous Case is one of many that involved the management of VICENTE FOX as President of Mexico.
In ‘The Black Cartel’ is an investigation by ANA LILIA PEREZ, author of Blue Shirts, Black Hands, scrupulously documents the actions of organized crime in the Mexican oil industry: the creation of front companies, simulated contracts, the milking of wells and pipelines, as well as the looting in areas with greater armor.
The Events were made by the Governments of VICENTE FOX QUESADA and FELIPE CALDERON HINOJOSA.
In this way, it is revealed how the world’s number 11 oil company has been on its knees before the Mafia because the black gold fever seduces everyone. The black cartel is a window into the muddy underworld into which Pemex has become, the product of many years of looting, corruption, and impunity with FOX and CALDERON.
The White House is a special report of The Mexican Journalist CARMEN ARISTEGUI.
The Report profiles: The President ENRIQUE PENA NIETO owns a house in Las Lomas, Ciudad de Mexico, valued at USD 7 million. It was built to its liking by Grupo Higa, one of the companies that won the tender of the Mexico-Queretaro train, and that previously raised works in the state, when he was governor.
Conform with the Mexican National Institute of Statistics and Geography, now nearly 90% of Mexicans see the state and federal government as deeply corrupt. Citizens regard corruption as the second most severe problem facing the country, after crime and violence.
