Narcobaron El Chap’s wife was arrested by police: Allegations of international drug trafficking


Emma Coronel Aispur, 31, a US and Mexican citizen, has been arrested at Dulles International Airport and is due to appear in federal court in Washington on Tuesday. She is accused of planning the distribution of cocaine, methamphetamine (pervitin), heroin and marijuana in the United States. The Department of Justice also accuses her of assisting her husband in escaping from a Mexican prison in 2015 and of participating in planning a second escape from prison before Guzman was extradited to the United States in January 2017.

Mexico’s most powerful drug baron, nicknamed El Chapo (Krpec), escaped through a shower opening in his prison cell and entered a 1.6-kilometer-long lighted tunnel where a motorcycle was located on narrow-gauge rails. Planning for the escape was extensive and his wife played a key role, the prosecutor’s office said.

Guzman was sentenced to life imprisonment

According to court documents, Coronel Aispur is accused of working with Guzman’s sons and a witness who is now working with the US government to organize the construction of an underground tunnel. Guzmán escaped from the strictly guarded Altiplano prison in Mexico, thanks to which he was not extradited to the USA. Part of the escape planning was the purchase of land near the prison, firearms and an armored truck, as well as the smuggling of a watch with GPS. These made it possible to “determine the exact location of Guzmán and build a tunnel so that it can easily enter it,” the documents say.

Guzman was sentenced to life in 2019. During the 25-year rule, his drug cartel Sinaloa was responsible for smuggling huge amounts of cocaine and other drugs into the United States, the prosecutor’s office said in documents. She also wrote that his “army of sicarios,” or “assassins,” was ordered to kidnap, torture, and kill anyone who stood in his way.

Coronel Aispur attended hearings regularly during Guzmán’s trial, even when witness statements put her in a very bad light. He is now in custody.
