Mexican leader under pressure over mansion

Friday, November 21, 2014

Facing conflict of interest accusations over the Mexican first lady's mansion, President Enrique Pena Nieto disclosed he owned nine separate real estate properties among his total personal assets worth at least $3.3 million.

His assets also included financial investments, jewellery and works of art, a document posted on the president's website showed.

Those assets were separate from a nearly $4 million Mexico City luxury home, occupied by the First Lady Angelica Rivera, and which she was acquiring from a government contractor bidding for a lucrative high-speed rail contract.
