According to the survey by the firm Pulso Ciudadano, 64 percent of respondents said they agreed or strongly agreed that the president had to be prosecuted due to the Pandora Papers revelations on the sale of the Dominga mining project in a tax heaven.

The survey was carried out online and comprised 1,602 people.

On November 9, the Chamber of Deputies approved the indictment against Piñera with 78 votes in favor, 67 against and 3 abstentions, after a long day of debates that lasted over 20 hours.

The deputy head of the Socialist Party legislators, Jaime Naranjo, who filed the indictment, prolonged his presentation so that two MPs who finished their Covid-19 quarantine the previous day could particiate in the voting.

In 2010, nine months after Piñera took office in his first term, his familiy sold the project to build two mines and a port for 152 million dollars, and part of the transaction was done in the tax haven of the British Virgin Islands.
