El Chapo’s Wife, Emma Coronel Aispuro Arrested For Drug Trafficking

Published

on

The wife of notorious Mexican drug trafficker Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Loera has been on drug trafficking charges.

Emma Coronel Aispuro, 31, was taken into custody on Monday, February 22, at Dulles International Airport. She is scheduled to make her appearance in federal court soon in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia via video conference.

Aispuro is charged in a one-count criminal complaint with a conspiracy to distribute one kilogram or more of heroin, five kilograms or more of cocaine, 1,000 kilograms or more of marijuana, and 500 grams or more of methamphetamines for unlawful importation into the U.S., the Department of Justice said in a news release.

She also allegedly helped Guzman Loera escape from a Mexican prison in 2015, the department said.

After Guzman was re-arrested in Mexico in January 2016, she was also said to have engaged in planning yet another prison escape, before he was eventually extradited to the U.S. in January 2017.

Mike Vigil, a former DEA agent who worked undercover in Mexico, told DailyMail.com that Coronel was ‘a narco princess’ deeply enmeshed in the world of trafficking.

‘She was not a distributor, or a money launderer, or involved in logistics,’ said Vigil. ‘But she did things he ordered he to, like passing messages.

‘So did she participate? Yes.

‘But these charges are related to things that she did in the past. It’s not like she’s branching out on her own.’

 El Chapo

Guzman Loera was convicted in 2019 on 10 charges of engaging in a continual criminal enterprise and multiple counts of distributing tons of cocaine into the United States. He was sentenced to life in prison plus 30 years.

Kufour Was Determined To Jail Me At All Cost : Tsatsu Tsikata

Tsatsu Tsikata has said in an interview that the Kufuor administration was keen on putting him behind bars.

The lawyer and academician claimed that this was because of his great relationship with former President Rawlings.

According to him, the Kufuor administration, was determined to wipe out the legacy of the former late president in the country’s oil and gas industry.

Tsatsu who is the lead counsel for John Dramani Mahama in the ongoing election petition trial, added that former president Kufuor was determined to make him spend jail time by “hook or crook” during his tenure in office.

It could be recalled that the Accra Fast Track High Court, in June 2008, convicted the former Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC), Chief Executive, giving him a five-year jail term for wilfully causing financial loss to the State.

He was charged with three counts of wilfully causing financial loss of GHS230,000 (2.3 billion old Ghana cedis) to the State through a loan he guaranteed for Valley Farms, a private company, on behalf of GNPC and another count of misapplying public property.

In a conversation with KSM on the KSM show, Tsikata mentioned that he became a target of the Kufour administration because he was close to late former President Rawlings.

“They had to find something. I could see by the beginning of 2001, the determination, by hook or crook to find something against me. That is what led to all these interesting cases against me,” he said.
