As it was revealed by the Pandora Papers, Piñera and his family sold the mining company to his friend Carlos Alberto Délano in the British Virgin Islands in 2010, when the president was in his first term in office.

The transaction was made for 152 million dollars in three payments, the last of which was conditioned to the non-fulfillment of the demand of nature defenders to declare the area as an environmentally protected area.

Given the seriousness of the facts, an investigation will be made, which will be conducted by the regional prosecutor, Claudia Perivancich, from Valparaíso, declared today in a press conference the spokesperson of the prosecutor’s office, Marta Herrera.

Perivancich is the same one who in Valparaíso is handling the case of the accusations filed against Piñera for human rights violations during the social outburst of 2019.

The institution took into account the recommendations of the Anti-Corruption Unit that analyzed the background revealed by Pandora’s Papers last Sunday.

In response to Piñera’s statements that the case had already been investigated, the prosecutor’s office specified that the facts related to the purchase and sale of the mining company were not included in the court’s previous decision.
