SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) — Chilean opposition lawmakers on Wednesday started an impeachment process against President Sebastián Piñera for alleged irregularities in the sale of a family mining company that came to light as part of a global investigation dubbed the Pandora Papers.
The lower house chose five legislators to review the arguments. They will then make a recommendation to the full chamber on whether it should move forward with the impeachment or not. The committee will notify the president, who has denied any wrongdoing, and he will have 10 days to respond.
