26 April 2012. Mexico’s federal government will investigate how Wal-Mart de Mexico SAB obtained federal permits for any possible “irregular conduct,” the nation’s anti- corruption agency said.
The Public Administration Ministry will examine the permits and approvals Wal-Mart obtained from federal agencies to open and operate its stores in Mexico, it said today on its website. It will also solicit information from the U.S. government, it said.
Nearly half of Mexico’s state prosecuting authorities said on Tuesday they had no immediate plans to investigate allegations of corruption by the Mexican arm of Wal-Mart Stores Inc .
