The wife of Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman was arrested at a Virginia airport on charges of international drug trafficking. The Department of Justice said it, detailing how she helped plot her husband’s daring escape from a Mexican prison.
Emma Coronel Aispuro, 31, has a passport from the United States and Mexico, was arrested at Dulles International Airport and is expected to appear in federal court in Washington Tuesday morning. The woman is accused of smuggling cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin and marijuana to the United States.
The Justice Department also accuses her of helping her husband escape from a Mexican prison in 2015 and of participating in planning a second prison escape before Guzman was extradited to the United States in January 2017. Coronel Aispuro is currently in custody. precautionary.
Emma’s arrest has a high symbolic value and indicates the willingness of the American investigators to put pressure on Chapo, who after being sentenced to life imprisonment was locked up in the Supermax maximum security prison in Colorado. So far he has not told anything about his empire, his treasure and the many complicities. His wife has always sided with him with pride, never showing concern for possible personal repercussions. In recent years she has often traveled to the United States, where in 2012 she gave birth to twins. His arrest opens a new chapter in the history of Mexican drug trafficking, increasingly a family affair.
