Report: Mexican Pres Plagiarized 29 Percent Of Law Thesis
Mexican news outlet Aristegui Noticias accused President Enrique Peña Nieto Sunday of plagiarizing 29 percent of his law school thesis.
The Mexican leader submitted his thesis in 1991 after studying law at the private Panamerican University in Mexico City from 1984 to 1989, according to Aristegui Noticias. Mexican government spokesman Eduardo Sánchez referred to the Mexican news outlet’s findings as cases of “style errors.”
“The graduate Peña Nieto presented this thesis 25 years ago. He met the requirements established by the Panamerican University to become a lawyer,” Sánchez stated in a press release on behalf of the government Sunday.
The president’s media bulldog went on to state, “From the style errors seen such as quotes missing quotation marks or a lack of reference to authors which he had included in his bibliography, it’s two decades and a half later, material of journalistic interest. Criticism and debate are welcome.” – READ MORE
