Drugs: “El Chapos” woman arrested in the US – News abroad


The wife of the Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán (63) was arrested on Monday at an airport in the US state of Virginia! The charge: including drug trafficking.

Cocaine, Methamphetamine, Heroin, Marijuana …

Emma Coronel Aispuro, 31, who has dual citizenship of the US and Mexico, was arrested at Dulles International Airport near Washington DC. She should appear in front of a federal court in Washington on Tuesday – via video switch.

“El Chapo’s” wife is also accused of helping her husband escape from a Mexican prison in 2015. She was also “busy planning another prison break” before Guzmán was extradited to the US in January 2017, according to the Justice Department.

El Chapo, leader of the powerful Sinaloa cartel in Mexico for 25 years, was responsible for smuggling mountains of cocaine and other drugs into the United States. He is sitting in a maximum security prison in the US state of Colorado. A court in New York had sentenced him to life imprisonment plus 30 years in July 2019.

Coronel was among the spectators in the courtroom at the time. She kept throwing him kisses.

A jury found Guzmán guilty of all ten charges in one of the largest drug trials in American history – including involvement in a criminal organization, manufacture and international distribution of cocaine and heroin, and money laundering and firearms use.
