"Rosario Robles will be able to say many things, but what she will not be able to do is prove lies. I had no direct or indirect participation in the so-called 'Master Scam', much less benefit from that alleged mechanism," Videgaray stressed.
"I deeply regret that Robles chooses to accuse me without grounds in order to try to free her legal situation... desperation cannot be a justification for lying and incriminating innocent people. That should not be the way to get the truth."
The Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) has an open investigation for acts of corruption against Videgaray following accusations supported by the former director of Mexican oil company PEMEX Emilio Lozoya who connected him to the case of bribes given by the Brazilian company Odebrecht to Mexican officials and politicians between 2012 and 2014.
According to Lozoya, Videgaray would have used Odebrecht's money to finance a smear campaign against the opposition candidates Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador and Josefina Vazquez Mota in 2012.
