Senators from the Democratic Revolution Party (PRD) announced that they will ask Aristóteles Núñez Sánchez, the head of the Tax Administration Service (SAT), to explain what measures are being taken to investigate the 33 Mexicans implicated in the Panama Papers.

The leak revealed the involvement of 33 Mexican politicians, businessmen and artists with the Mossack-Fonseca law firm and the creation of offshore businesses.

Legislators Mario Delgado Carrillo, Armando Tíos Piter and Rabindranath Salazar Aburto complained that almost two weeks after the leak, there have been no concrete actions or investigations taken against the implicated.

Armando Ríos Piter, Chair of the Treasury Committee, said that Mexico cannot ignore the Panama Papers.

“We demand the presence of the authorities of the Tax Administration Service, including Secretary Nuñez,” said Piter. “We need more than just a press release. We need to know exactly how the SAT is investigating the 33 Mexicans implicated in the Panama Papers.”

The senators stressed that there had been global consequences for the Panama Papers, such as for Iceland and Ukraine, both of whose prime ministers resigned because of the scandal.

Mario Delgado, another member of the Treasury Committee, said that there will be consequences for Mexico in the Panama Papers, as there have been in other countries.

“If we really want to fight corruption, there need to be consequences,” he said. “I don’t want Mexico to be the only country where nothing changed after this international scandal.”

The senators noted that Secretary Nuñez had said that he would investigate the 33 Mexicans implicated in the Panama Papers.
