El Universal: Mexican media quiet about Raniere, Salinas and Betancourt and AnimaNovember 3, 2018
Raniere’s partners in Mexico
In the United States, the fall of Keith Raniere – the leader of a dismal self-help sect with a presence in several countries, including Mexico – has been in the news for months.
In addition to the charges Raniere is facing, the list of his alleged accomplices includes scandal-worthy names such as Allison Mack, a TV actress who was recruiting potential sex slaves for their leader, and Clare Bronfman, the heiress of the Seagram fortune and a patron of Raniere.
In short, the collapse of Keith Raniere, his company NXIVM and his programs of supposed self-help, among them the so-called ESP, has become a news story and a huge shame for its creators.
In Mexico, the story has been different.
Emiliano Salinas [l] embraces his master Keith Raniere.NXIVM president Nancy Salzman cuts the ribbon opening the Mexico NXIVM center.
Other Mexican businessmen close to Raniere have resisted closing down their operations.
Mrs. González Anaya has also participated in ESP, the Raniere self-help group, as well as Esteban González, an ANIMA executive.
In the last decade, his company organized several events of considerable magnitude, including the Day of the Dead Parade of 2017, at the hands of the Ministry of Tourism, at a time when the accusations against Raniere were already appearing on the pages of some newspapers in the US.
