Chávez Government also went through Mossack Fonseca

Pequiven, a subsidiary of Petróleos de Venezuela, sought shelter in tax havens to legalize its association with Iranian company National Petrochemical Company, from which Veniran emerged. Although the Panamanian law firm was suspicious of the alliance between the then presidents Hugo Chávez and Mahmud Ahmadinejad, it finally solved the inconvenience to please both clients.

Pequiven also registered companies in tax havens. To register companies in the British Virgin Islands, the Petrochemical Corporation of Venezuela used the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca, from which the already famous Panama Papers came out.

Established in 1977, the Venezuelan state company resorted to the same services required by some private entrepreneurs to avoid taxes or remain anonymous. It did it together with its Iranian counterpart of the National Petrochemical Company to formalize company Veniran, the joint venture that promises methanol for 10 years under a business alliance between Caracas and Tehran.
