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.
The agreement still has to be ratified by the country’s Senate, which could be a problem, according to social network post by some of the Senators. 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.”
Last year, the Senate warned that it will not ratify the pact, saying ACTA violated the country’s constitution.
