¿Por Qué? Mexican Ambassador Signs ACTA

Mexico’s ambassador in Japan has signed the controversial Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, despite the country’s Senate having previously voted against participation in the treaty.

One official, PRD Senator Carlos Sotelo, used his Twitter account to say “The Senate should reject [the] ratification in light of the resolution adopted unanimously in December 2011.”
