It is confirmed, candidate Claudia Sheinbaum lied, her family appeared in the Panama Papers

During the presidential debate, the 4T candidate was questioned about her family’s appearance in the Panama Papers. She categorically denied it, but little time passed for the reality to come to light.

(CDMX – Times Media Mexico) – Based on the information released by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), Claudia Sheinbaum’s grandmother, mother, and aunts, would have created a company in the British Virgin Islands tax haven in March 1990 through the firm Citco.

Based on internal files of the Mossack Fonseca firm, the investigation showed that three companies were linked to her family: JAEM LTD, Vanmiste Ltd, and Jagoga Ltd.

With Jaem LTD, the articles of incorporation that were made public established that Mati Cemo de Pardo, grandmother of the official candidate, was the main shareholder with 25 thousand shares. The rest were distributed among her three daughters:
Annie Pardo, the mother of Claudia Sheinbaum, has eight thousand 500 shares. Esther Pardo, aunt: she also had 8,500 shares. Sally Jacqueline Pardo, aunt: also with 8,500 shares. It was also disclosed that, during its foundation, this company had a board of directors chaired by the candidate’s mother; her aunt Sally was the vice president, and her aunt Esther served as secretary. Although the documents did not disclose what the company did, it was reported that it was active until at least 2006.

Unlike the first company, this one was allegedly created solely by Claudia Sheinbaum’s aunt Esther in 2008. Its base was supposedly located in Huixquilucan, State Mexico, and the directors would be the candidate’s cousins: Miguel, Vanessa, and Stephanie Gurwitz Pardo.

Jagoga Ltd
Also created in 2008, Sally Jacqueline Pardo created this company where she placed José David and Gabriel Davidov Pardo -cousins of the candidate- as directors. Based on the documents of the Panamanian law firm, it remained active until 2016.
The information about these companies occurred between the candidates for the republic’s presidency since, in the first presidential debate, Gálvez Ruiz confronted Sheinbaum about the accounts in tax havens, resulting in a categorical denial by Sheinbaum Pardo.

A few days later, confronted by various media and faced with the already undeniable reality, she had no choice but to accept that such accounts did indeed exist but were “inherited” after the death of her grandmother, assuring that it was not a significant sum of money and denying any link with illicit activities.

This explanation did not satisfy candidate Gálvez Ruiz, who insisted that Sheinbaum owed her an apology for calling her a liar and the citizenry for having been branded a liar without justification.

Although Claudia Sheinbaum claims to have been a “small” sum of money, it is public knowledge that the firm Mossack Fonseca worked accounts from half a million US dollars.

The other lies
Candidate Sheinbaum now lies by saying that she does not own any property. That she rents an austere apartment; however, in her 3de3 patrimonial declaration a few years ago, she declared the following:

  • 90 square meter apartment in Coyoacán, purchased on credit in 1999 and valued at 400,000 pesos.
  • A house in Tlalpan purchased in cash, built between 1985 and 1988, in the name of Carlos Imaz Gispert, her ex-husband, and “in the process of regularization.” It is included in the declaration because it is where she resides.
  • A house in Cuernavaca (Morelos), bought in cash and built between 2002 and 2005, in the name of her ex-spouse’s son, who also lives there.
  • An 80-square-meter apartment in Coyoacán, purchased on credit between 2009 and 2010, was acquired by inheritance from his parents and FOVIIISTE credit. The property cost one million 800,000 pesos and is in the name of Sheinbaum and her ex-spouse; however, it is being deeded to her daughter.
  • A Chevrolet car 2012 model, which she bought on credit for 125,000 pesos.
