Federal police have arrested 31-year-old Emma Coronel Aispuro, the wife of famed Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, at Dulles International Airport near Washington. She is accused of involvement in the international drug trade. Unofficially, they are trying to persuade El Chapa to cooperate with the American police in this way.
Emma Coronel Aispuro, woman Joaquina “El Chapa” Guzmana, is accused of collaborating in the distribution of cocaine, amphetamines, heroin and marijuana. She was imprisoned overnight after her arrest, and today she will appear before a federal judge via video conference.
In addition to her involvement in the drug trade, she is also accused of helping her husband escape from prison in 2015. After his sons bought an estate near the heavily guarded Mexican prison of Altiplano and managed to smuggle his watch into it with a GPS device so they knew exactly where it was all the time, they dug a long underground tunnel, after which he escaped to a special one. manufactured small engine. The story of his spectacular escape then resonated strongly in the media.
Documents also testify that his wife was involved in planning a new escape before her husband was handed over to U.S. authorities in January 2017.
Coronel Aispurova, who otherwise has dual citizenship – both Mexican and American – does not comment on the allegations.
Her 63-year-old husband, a former Sinaloa cartel leader, is serving a prison sentence in what is supposedly the most secure ADX Florence federal prison in the state of Colorado. In 2019, he was sentenced to life in prison and an additional 30 years in prison for drug trafficking and money laundering. The trial revealed shocking details from his life – from stunning and raping girls as young as 13, to the cold-blooded ways in which he killed former cartel members and their opponents.
Emma and El Chapo were married in 2007 when she was just 18 years old, and the drug king was already in her teens. They have two children. As a faithful wife, she attended almost every hearing held for three months in federal court in Brooklyn, New York. There, she heard not only about the bloody crimes and rapes he committed, but also about how he spied on her and his other mistresses.
Despite all this, she stood by his side and stated at the end of the trial: “I don’t know my husband the way they try to portray him. I admire him as the man I met and married. ”
Guzman comes from a poor family in Sinaloa in northwestern Mexico. His organized crime business flourished so much that in 2009 he was ranked on the Forbes list of the richest people. With assets valued at $ 1 billion, he ranked 701st.
U.S. commentators believe U.S. police arrested the 31-year-old to persuade El Chapa to cooperate with U.S. police. The war on drugs is currently a bit curtailed as U.S.-Mexico relations become strained after a complication over a former Mexican defense minister Salvador Cienfuegos. He was arrested by Americans in October for collaborating with murder cartels, prompting Mexico to officially protest. The U.S. then abruptly dropped the indictment in November and returned Cienfuegos to Mexico, where they also immediately ended the investigation there. This is new evidence that the war on drugs is futile as long as the grateful U.S. market provides huge profits to enterprising manufacturers and resellers.
