The criminal complaint filed against Pena Nieto by the government’s Financial Intelligence Unit doesn’t mean prosecutors have decided to file formal charges. But the head of the unit says federal prosecutors have received the complaint alleging use of illicit funds and are investigating it.

Gomez said Thursday that a company run by Pena Nieto’s family had received about $500 million in government contracts while he was president from 2012 to 2018.
