Temas:

Three regulatory institutions have started investigations into Mossack Fonseca, the law firm at the center of an international scandal due to the leak of its internal files.

The Superintendency of Banks, the Superintendency of Securities and the newly-created Administration of the Supervision and Regulation of Non-Financial Entities have all opened inquiries into the activities of the firm detailed in a number of international publications.

Those stories were based on documents obtained by the German daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung, which shared them with 109 other media houses through the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ).

The Superintendency of Banks is the entity that governs the trust business. In this regard, it must determine whether Mossfon Trust Corporation, focused on creating structures for the protection of client assets, carried out required due diligence.

The Superintendency of Securities started its investigation Monday of Mossack Asset Management, a financial advisory firm that is part of the conglomerate of the firm.

Minister of Economy and Finance Dulcidio De La Guardia confirmed that the Administration of the Supervision and Regulation of Non-Financial Entities, which is part of the ministry, also launched an investigation this week.

De La Guardia would not go into details on what information was sought in the investigation. He said that the administration will report on that today.

The administration was created in April 2015 as part of the updating of the legal framework to combat money laundering entity. Law firms are one of the entities it can investigate.
