Documents has noticed that the media in Mexico contains very little information about the business dealings and personal assets in the United States of what could be termed Mexican elites, wealthy businesspeople, and politicians. ChedrauiLeaks is not stating that members of the Chedraui family or its businesses had any involvement with these companies or this condo unit.
