Mexican drug lord El Chapo’s wife arrested


THE Emma Coronel Aispuro, 31-year-old former beauty pageant winner, wife of Mexican drug lord JoaquinEl TsapoGuzman was arrested Monday at her international airport Washington, as she is suspected of being involved in drug trafficking, announced the US authorities.

Ms. Coronel Aispuro, who has dual Mexican and American citizenship, is expected to appear in federal court today. Her husband, co-founder Sinaloa cartel, long considered the most powerful drug lord in the world, was convicted July 2019 to serve a life sentence on USA for drug trafficking. He is serving his sentence in a maximum security prison at Colorado.

The 30-year-old El Chapo is accused of being involved in a network that flooded the US market with substances ranging from cocaine to marijuana, to heroin and methamphetamines.

According to a lawsuit filed against her, she also allegedly participated in the extremely complicated business to escape her husband in July 2015 from a Mexican prison, worthy of a Hollywood movie. To escape, “El Tsapo” dug a gallery of one and a half kilometers to his cell, equipped with rails and other means. The revelation of the details of the escape was a painful blow to the Mexican authorities.

The couple had twin girls, born in California (southern USA) in 2012.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had undertaken to investigate the young woman, who attended almost all the hearings of her husband’s trial in 2019.

US justice allows her minimal contact with her husband – she has been barred from visiting him in jail, and she has also been barred from talking on the phone.
