Mexico Lawmakers Demand President Disclose Assets

Mexico's president, Enrique Pena Nieto, came under pressure on Friday to fully disclose his financial assets following a Reuters report stating that he had misrepresented the circumstances under which he acquired a property in a lakeside retreat near Mexico City. Opposition lawmakers from left and right called on to detail all of his properties, saying he had undermined his own efforts to battle corruption. Meanwhile, legal experts and two former government officials tasked with overseeing public servants, said the assertion by Pena Nieto's office that the plot of land was donated by his father was inaccurate. This after Reuters reported a public registry document stated he was the plot's sole purchaser.
