No Comment 11 Views

Mexico has opened an investigation into the assets of Manuel Bartlett, head of the national electricity company CFE, according to the Public Administration Ministry, which investigates complaints against public servants.

The government corruption watchdog said in a statement late on Monday the investigation into Bartlett’s “declaration of assets and interests” follows an anonymous citizen complaint filed with it.

Mexican journalists Areli Quintero and Carlos Loret de Mola last month reported that Bartlett had built up a real estate portfolio comprising 25 properties worth some 800 million pesos ($41 million), far more than the assets reported in his public declaration.

“As I said before, the information regarding properties attributed to me is false. My financial statement is in order,” Bartlett said on Twitter.

“The (Public Administration Ministry) has opened an investigation and I will present all the documentation and information that is required of me.”
