Mexican President Misrepresented Personal Land Deal

Reuters reports Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto misrepresented to authorities the circumstances under which he acquired one of his properties, a discrepancy that could add to a controversy surrounding his personal finances. According to an official asset declaration first made in 2013, the president stated that he acquired the property through a "donation" or gift from his father. Pena Nieto, who made his asset declaration public in 2013 as part of a transparency and accountability push, has since updated and ratified this declaration twice.
