Mexico Edition. Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto signed the laws which will regulate the participation of private and foreign exploitation of hydrocarbons. He assures that now the country will grow without barriers and there will be jobs for workers. At the same time, civil organizations prepare lawsuits to petition the repeal of these laws. According to constitutionalist, Jaime Cardenas, these laws and the temporary occupation of the land can be challenged. However, the disputes about tax payments, supplies, the number of jobs or the profit percentages of the companies could all be settled in international court.
Guests: (Audio Fragments) Jaime Cardenas, Constitutionalist and Investigator for “Instituto de Investigaciones Jurídicas,” National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), Mexico City.
