Chilean Lawmakers Move to Impeach President Piñera over Pandora Papers Revelations

HeadlineOct 15, 2021

In Chile, opposition lawmakers have launched impeachment proceedings against President Sebastián Piñera over possible irregularities in the 2010 sale of a mining company 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.”
