ASSETS OF MEXICAN PUBLIC OFFICIALS
As of 1997, Mexico has federal legislation which requires all governmental officials to do 3 filings with the Federal Mexican Government regarding the notice of their personal assets.. They are: 1 File a statement of their assets prior to entry into office; 2. File a statement of their assets prior to exit of office; and 3. file a yearly statement of assets while in office.
The goal is to determine that there is no unjust enrichment of the governmental official.
The process and forms are available at governmental offices on line (internet) or via a computer diskette. The address on the internet is http://www.declaranet.gob.mx
The Federal Government of Mexico is now requiring the Mexican banks to get federally approved forms filled out by all the clients and new clients of the banks, so as to determine whether there is money laundering!
