The President of Mexico answers KEI’s Letter and asks Minister of
Economy for additional comments on ACTA positions

By Alberto Cerda

On August 10, 2010, KEI sent a letter [1] to the President of Mexico
expressing our concerns in the position of the Mexican government in the
ACTA negotiations. KEI noted that the proposed ACTA text, if adopted,
would require the adoption of new legal provisions that would compromise
the public interest of Mexico. KEI asked the Mexican government to
change some positions it had taken earlier in the negotiation, and to
support the inclusion in the ACTA text of of new flexibilities and
protections of the fundamental rights of its citizens.

Last week, the President of Mexico sent to us a letter [2], in which he
explains that the ACTA negotiations are handle directly by the Minister
of Economy. Therefore, it should be “Minister of Economy, who, …
according to the article 8º of the Constitution of Mexico, shall provide
an opportune and legal answer.” The President of Mexico also sent a
letter [3] to the Minister of Economy, asking the Minister to respond to
the KEI letter.
