Chilean Lawmakers Move to Impeach President Piñera
…over Pandora Papers Revelations
HAVANA TIMES – In Chile, opposition lawmakers have launched impeachment proceedings against President Sebastián Piñera over possible irregularities in the 2010 sale of a mining company that is partially owned by Piñera’s children. The revelations emerged in the Pandora Papers leak, detailing how the company — named Dominga — was sold for $138 million to an offshore firm run by a Chilean businessman and a close friend of Piñera’s.
Chile’s public prosecutor last week announced a probe into the sale, citing possible tax and bribery-related violations. One lawmaker said, “Chile does not deserve to have a president like Piñera.”
