MEXICO CITY –

Chapo Sinaloa Lady

Mexican Marines are nipping at the heels of Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán’s – or at least that’s what the minister overseeing the Marines believes.

Since Oct. 6, thousands of soldiers have been sent to the area known as Mexico’s “Golden Triangle,” the remote, mountainous region where the states of Chihuahua, Durango and Sinaloa converge.

Most of them parachuted in.

The operation was reportedly triggered by information provided to Mexican authorities by U.S. drug agents who were monitoring cell phone activity.

Around 200 people from the region, presumably scared of getting caught in the crossfire between the Marines and the Sinaloa Cartel’s sicarios, have fled to the town of Cosalá.

“The Marines told us that they want to capture the Lord,” they told reporters, and mentioned talking about soldiers attacking civilians.

“People are frightened,” Cosalá’s representative in the state legislature, Lucero Sánchez López, told TV reporters, adding that at least eight people were missing.

The most interesting fact about Sánchez  is that she has been identified by the Mexican press and the Attorney General’s office, as Chapo’s newest lover and the mother of his youngest child, an allegation she has consistently denied.

For its part, SEMAR says there haven’t been any civilian attacks, but it doesn’t deny that the Marines are carrying out an operation in that sector of Sinaloa and across the state line in Durango – a state that’s governed by Ricardo Ochoa, whose sister, Emma Coronel, happens to be Chapo’s current wife.

The presumed romantic relationship between the 57-year-old Guzmán – the world’s most wanted drug kingpin – and a 26-year-old, thick-lipped and light-haired member of the National Action Party (PAN) – has spread ever since June, when it was first reported that she visited Chapo in Altiplano prison, some 55 miles from Mexico City, in May when she was pregnant.

At the time, authorities at the prison lodged a complaint with PGR saying that Chapo received a visit from a woman who used a fake ID who was not his wife. For her part, Sánchez says that the woman photographed with the drug lord isn’t her.

The newspaper Excélsior, suggested that Sánchez first met Chapo in 2013, at a party in the Golden Triangle that both attended. A few months later, her former husband and the father of her two sons, Rubén Chavez, 27, was shot to death.

A few days after Chapo’s second escape from a Mexican high-security prison in July, the Attorney General’s office (PGR in its Spanish acronym) leaked to the media a statement by one of Guzmán Loera’s attorneys confirming that Sánchez  visited his client to discuss details of where and how their child would be raised.

A veteran columnist from El Universal newspaper, Ricardo Alemán, wrote, “Very little is known for a fact about Chapo’s children … What we do know is that Chapo’s youngest kid is the son of Lucero Guadalupe Sánchez López, presently a deputy in the Sinaloa Congress from the 16th district of Cosalá.”

He added, “It is also known that Mrs. Sánchez became deputy in the state congress by virtue of Chapo’s influence in Cosalá.”

Sánchez continues to deny having a relationship with Chapo. At a session of the Sinaloa Congress in July, she said the topic was “ridiculous” and condemned  the PGR’s “coarse leaks” and said she intended to “file a claim with the [Mexican] Human Rights Commission for defamation and moral injury to me, my children and the rest of my family.”

It isn’t known whether she has filed any claim or if she has been called into the PGR for questioning. Chapo’s wife, with whom the kingpin has twin daughters, has not made any public statement on the matter.

PAN leaders have stated that Sánchez will be removed from her post if it proves that she did, in fact, visit Chapo at Altiplano.

Whether or not Sánchez is involved with Chapo, few people doubt that he’s in the Golden Triangle. What’s less clear is that Mexico’s forces will be able to catch him a third time.

“There’s hardly any other place where he could feel more secure than the Golden Triangle, where he has not only friends but family and social protection,” analyst José Reveles, author of the Spanish-language book, “El Chapo: Surrender and Treason,” told Fox News Latino.

Asia the Next target for the Drug Cartels

Latin American drug syndicates are sweeping into Asia, spurred by growing wealth, regional trade pacts that ease smuggling and some of the highest margins on offer.

Growth in the drugs trade, a significant part of an illicit economy worth more than $100 billion a year in east Asia alone, has led to a rapid rise in seizures: 254 million methamphetamine pills, for example, were intercepted in east and Southeast Asia in 2013 — a more than eight fold increase in just five years.

Officials warn that Asian law enforcement authorities are ill-equipped to cope with the rapid rise of drugs being smuggled across increasingly porous borders.

“Police and customs officials in Asia don’t often have connections in the Americas and have little knowledge of what may be coming their way,” said Jeremy Douglas, regional representative for the UN Office on Drugs and Crime. “They don’t operate internationally. They’re about to have to.”

For those who are caught, the risks outweigh the rewards, with the death penalty operating for drugs offences in several Asian jurisdictions.

The Philippines, which has debated introducing the death sentence for drug offences, is the test bed for a pioneering case next month, when Mexican national Horatio Hernandez Herrera appears in court accused of being a high-ranking member of the notorious Sinaloa drugs cartel.

At a regional meeting in Bangkok last month, representatives of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations raised red flags, saying that despite the potential for economic growth and trade, the region’s rapidly increasing connectivity could leave borders vulnerable to transnational trafficking and smuggling.

“Strengthening skills, capacity and cross-border co-operation among border and port security agencies is therefore essential to counter rapidly evolving transnational crime challenges,” said Jakkrit Srivali, a top official with Thailand’s foreign affairs ministry.

 

Growing wealth in Asia has translated into heightened demand for cocaine, with emerging pockets of consumption, trafficking and trade, according to a report last year from the UN office.

Mexico’s infamous Sinaloa cartel, whose head Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán staged a sensational jailbreak last month, has been pinpointed as a key supplier by authorities across Asia-Pacific.

The Jalisco New Generation cartel, an aggressive newcomer to Mexico’s drug wars that achieved notoriety in recent months after shooting down a military helicopter, is also targeting markets in Hong Kong and Japan, according to Canacintra, a Mexican business chamber.

“The severe penalties, such as life imprisonment or even the death penalty, for traffickers caught in Asia are reflected in the exorbitant price of the drugs there,” organisation president Rodrigo Alpízar Vallejo told media in Mexico.

Asia-Pacific economies offer much higher profit margins than the cartel’s traditional markets. In Hong Kong, a kilogramme of cocaine can sell for up to three times the price it would in the US. In Australia, it can be as much as six times, according to police and experts.

Meanwhile, according to financial crime investigators, the cartels will be closely studying regional trade deals, such as the landmark Trans-Pacific Partnership, for clues about the liberalisation of certain routes or the reduction of tariffs on certain goods, which could be used to hide contraband and assist in the trade-based repatriation of smuggling profits.

“Anything that is going to increase the volume of trade, the efficacy of trade, is also going to increase the opportunity and bandwidth of criminals to move their products and launder funds,” said Bill Majcher, who worked with American and Canadian federal police.

“Over the past few decades I have seen a dramatic increase in trade-based laundering closely correlated with the opening up of transnational trade zones and treaties,” said another investigator, who asked to remain anonymous due to ongoing operations.

Robert Evan Ellis, professor of Latin American Studies at the US Army War College and an expert on the region’s relations with China, said the deal would “expand opportunities for transpacific organised crime by increasing trade volume, and the number of banks and companies doing transpacific transactions”.

However, he noted that regional ties fostered by the deal would “indirectly help increase law enforcement and transpacific legal frameworks that will help combat the cartels”.

Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman has escaped

Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman has escaped after being imprisoned on February 22, 2014. I guess he just got tired of the same daily routine, and made a change!

MEXICO CITY – Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman has escaped from a maximum-security prison outside Mexico City, the government said Sunday, his second jail break in 14 years.

Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, pictured after his original recapture on February 22, 2014, has escaped from a maximum-security prison outside Mexico City, his second jail break in 14 years

The kingpin was last spotted by security cameras in the shower area of the Altiplano prison, 90 kilometers (55 miles) west of the capital, on Saturday night before disappearing, the National Security Commission said.

An alarm was issued after “he was not visible” for a while and “the escape of Guzman was confirmed,” the commission said in a statement.

“An operation to locate him was deployed in the area and on roads of neighboring states,” it said, adding that flights were suspended at the nearby Toluca airport.

His first escape from prison was in 2001, when he slipped past authorities by hiding in a laundry cart.

Marines finally recaptured Guzman in February 2014 in a pre-dawn raid in a condo in Mazatlan, a Pacific resort in Sinaloa state.

Guzman was considered the world’s most wanted drug lord, whose Sinaloa cartel shipped narcotics across the globe.

the capture of Sinaloa cartel boss Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman

the capture of Sinaloa cartel boss Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman

US authorities announced plans to seek the extradition of Mexico’s most powerful drug lord after his capture in a US-backed operation that included a drone, cellphone intercepts and elite Mexican marines.

As prosecutors in New York prepared their request, new details emerged Sunday from the manhunt that led to the capture of Sinaloa cartel boss Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, whose empire has smuggled drugs to the United States, Europe and Asia.

The US surveillance drone was used for two weeks between mid-January and mid-February to back up a massive operation in the northwestern city of Culiacan, a US government official told AFP on condition of anonymity.

Guzman eventually slipped out of Culiacan, the capital of Sinaloa state, after escaping through tunnels under one of his safe houses as the marines closed in on him, Mexican and US officials said.

Under pressure, the 56-year-old drug capo, who had been on the run since escaping from prison 13 years ago, fled further south to the beach resort city of Mazatlan.

It was there that the elite marine unit captured him on Saturday, in the fourth floor of a condominium, with a surprisingly small entourage that included one lookout, one bodyguard and a woman believed to be his beauty-queen wife, the US official said.

Guzman went down without a single shot.

“Cellular telephone intercepts were involved in the arrest,” the official said.

The US Drug Enforcement Administration had provided intelligence information to the marines.

The US official said the remote-controlled aircraft was not used in Mazatlan, but it had been deployed in Culiacan to corroborate other intelligence and that Mexico’s military had authorized its use.

One of the world’s most wanted man, Guzman had been spending most of his time in the bustling city of Culiacan, living in houses with escape tunnels, extra thick walls and steel-reinforced doors, officials said.

“It’s a big city where he has his contacts, his women, his houses,” the US official said.

Officials had hoped that Guzman would flee to a rural, more open space to capture him, and his decision to run to Mazatlan around three days before his arrest was a surprise, the official said.

His arrest capped a months-long operation that resulted in the arrests of a dozen Sinaloa cartel operatives, including alleged bodyguards of Guzman’s top associate, Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada.

Several cellphones were seized from the detainees and later used to establish wiretaps as part of the operation against the Sinaloa cartel, said an official from the Mexican attorney general’s office.

The official said authorities are still searching for Zambada, who is considered Guzman’s natural successor.

– US seeks extradition –

Nabbing Guzman, who is considered the world’s biggest drug trafficker, was a major victory in President Enrique Pena Nieto’s push to rein in drug violence in his country.

The Sinaloa cartel’s turf wars with rival gangs contributed to a wave of drug violence that left more than 77,000 people dead in the past seven years.

The United States had offered a $5 million reward for information leading to his capture, with several indictments in cities from New York to San Diego.

Robert Nardoza, a spokesman for the US Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York, said prosecutors there “plan to seek his extradition.”

A senior Republican lawmaker called for Guzman’s extradition, warning that “the biggest fish ever” may try to flee again in a repeat of his legendary 2001 escape from prison in a laundry cart.

“I think that would be the best course for not only Mexico, but also the United States, in ensuring that what happened in 2001 does not happen again,” Michael McCaul, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, told ABC television.

A Mexican foreign ministry spokesman declined to comment on the planned extradition request.

An official in the Mexican attorney general’s office said Guzman has to finish the 20-year sentence he avoided by fleeing eight years into his prison term.

But he is also facing new charges of drug trafficking, using illegal funds, organized crime and possession of weapons reserved for the military, the official said.

The captured kingpin is not facing murder charges

Mexico- why is Ciudad Juarez the most dangerous city?

Map showing the Rio Grande drainage basin.

The authorities of the State of Chihuahua and Ciudad Juarez say it is not the world’s most violent city

The authorities of the State of Chihuahua and Ciudad Juarez say it is not the most violent city in the world. That honor now falls to San Pedro Sula, Honduras, or in some areas of Rio or Caracas, who knows. The killings have gone from over 3,000 in 2010 to 2,000 last year and the trend continues downward. A new governor, the presence of federal police in the past year and a half billions of federal government investment and the mobilization of its people have contributed.

However, local journalists attribute the drop in the number of homicides to a very simple reason: the Sinaloa cartel, headed by Joaquin, El Chapo Guzman, has imposed on the remnants of the Juarez cartel, which was founded 20 years ago by Armando Carrillo Fuentes, the Lord of Heaven, named for the air fleet which came to move cocaine to the U.S..

But what happened to the city of tame Indians met by the Spanish Franciscans, the liberals of Benito Juarez, the Apaches of the skirmishes, and raids of Pancho Villa became the turn of the century in the capital world of crime?

Ciudad Juarez is impressive it has a special vibe as the Mexicans say. A vast expanse of flat land urbanized until the eye with buildings that do not exceed two floors. West and north the limit and the border mountains on the south, the desert. On the dusty streets, not always paved and poorly lit, rusting cars without number plates, stunning Suburban or Explorer trucks tinted windows and pickups of police patrols. Do not walk on them handsome and tough like Benicio del Toro and talking softly with his eyes closed, but teens fucking dwarf, poor and probably armed. Actually no walks. Juarez does not invite the stranger nothing, puts to the test.

It is the great backyard of El Paso, Texas, paradoxically, the most peaceful city in the U.S… On this side separates the Rio Grande, because once had floods and floods, and is now a dry moat. On the other, the Rio Grande is green and channeled peers. Three bridges cross the international office, where thousands of vehicles take more than hour and a half to travel to a crawl just 500 meters. In the main, before arriving at the poster you like “Bon Voyage”, a cross on a pink background and a small sign at the bottom that says “No More!” Reminiscent of the more than 1,200 women killed, shot, raped, tortured, beheaded and dismembered in the last 20 years.

City border and femicide, was a woman, Ignacia Jasso, the Nacha, which began in the late twenties of last century smuggling drugs north. Marijuana and heroin flowed naturally to the hearts of the soldiers gringos. La Nacha, with the help of his man, Pablote, a couple of legend, he mastered the business without serious mishaps over 50 years.

Juarez then began to change. In the mid-sixties came the maquilas, the factories of components that dominate half of the territory, today converted into a symbol of labor exploitation. Men and women, especially women, in southern Chihuahua found work in them.

The new and the old smuggling industry filled the pockets of the city, but there was still worse to come.

The signing of the FTA with the U.S. in 1993, born the same year as the Juarez cartel, another paradox was much bigger business. Flashes of this unlikely Eldorado came to southern Mexico. Thousands of women traveled there in search of jobs they had lost in the field. The city received 100,000 new residents a year, the population doubled in a decade to almost a million and a half now, as fast growing real estate speculation. But only awaited the mob, not of course public services. They found a swamp of impunity in which criminals and corrupt police officials imposed by law. There were many weapons, drugs and money. Killing was very easy and almost impossible to be punished for. It was born a Factory of crime as his indispensable book titled journalist Sandra Rodriguez. Homicides increased from year to year from 55 to 120.

Thousands of gang members, i.e., “who at the age of 17,” wrote Magda as Coss Nogueda in Arms trafficking in Mexico, “have already chosen which song they want to be buried”, became killers. Came the Aztecs, the Mexicles, assassins Murderers, named for their origin graffiti, and Line, the group of agents working for the cartel.

And here came Chapo. From 2007 and especially 2008 the Sinaloa cartel began to dispute the Juarez plaza. Murderers for hire were recruited, as armed guards who divided, bribed and threatened his opponents, public officials and infiltrated the police as part of organized crime.

A wave of betrayal and revenge spread through the city, the settling of scores made some months exceeded the 200 murders. The drug war would leave thousands of dead and missing in the streets in mass graves in the desert. Now, that wheel of death begins to stop. The sun begins to set on the big stage of the crime.

The delivery of Javier Antonio Calle Serna, 43, alias Comba, to the U.S. anti-narcotics police, DEA, brought to light one of the most important links of the Sinaloa cartel and of Los Zetas with suppliers of cocaine in Colombia, which controlled the export routes of the drugs to Mexico.

The W Radio and the newspaper El Tiempo reported yesterday that the country Antonio Street, the older brother and head of Luis and Juan Carlos Calle Serna, has alliances with the Sinaloa cartel led by Joaquin El Chapo Guzman, and the organization of drug trafficking known as Los Zetas to provide them with drugs.

Juan Carlos Calle, alias Armando, 40, the youngest of them and captured in mid-March is designated as the main scrubber Los Comba, which administers international contacts for the passage of cocaine from Bolivia to Colombia and Ecuador, using traffic Peru as a platform to European countries and America.

Javier Antonio Calle Serna had concluded agreements with the Front 15 of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, is believed to be kidnapped French journalist Romeo Langlois, of the television channel France 24, during a confrontation with the army in a place where cocaine was stored had been sold to the Sinaloa cartel, during a confrontation with the army.

El Chapo, will follow the path of Osama, US reaffirms fight against cartels

Janet Napolitano, United States Secretary of Homeland Security, and Alejandro Poire, Secretary of the Interior of Mexico, the border closed to criminals, both countries will strengthen action against terrorism and drug trafficking

MEXICO CITY, Feb. 28. – The Secretary of U.S. Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, said her country will persist in the arrest of the leader of the Sinaloa cartel, Joaquin El Chapo Guzman, and against the Zetas.

In a joint press conference with Secretary of the Interior (Interior Ministry), Alejandro Poire, the U.S. official likened the Sinaloa drug dealer with terrorist Osama bin Laden, who was killed last year in Pakistan, saying that even if take years, criminals have to pay for their actions.

“It took ten years to find Osama bin Laden, and you know what happened there. I am not suggesting that the same will happen with (El Chapo) Guzman, I am suggesting that we are persistent when it comes to people who do evil, “she said.

At the headquarters of the Interior Ministry, two officials agreed on mechanisms to strengthen bilateral relations in order to exchange information on international terrorism.

It was reported that efforts against drug trafficking and women abuse, and the start of a pilot repatriation of Mexicans, among other the many safety issues.

US ensures that the drug war has not been a failure

The Obama administration does not consider the war against organized crime, launched by President Felipe Calderon a “Freudian slip”, however is a necessary effort that must continue, said Janet Napolitano, Secretary of Homeland Security of the United States.

On a visit to our country and having been hosted by Secretary of the Interior, Alejandro Pore, the official stated that the Mexican government’s strategy to bring down crime must be an ongoing effort, not to be neglected.

“I do not think the fight against drugs is a failure. It is not! Is an ongoing effort and we will continue to help our people and avoid ingesting dangerous drugs, “the official emphasized the United States?

At the same time, Janet Napolitano likened the drug trafficker Joaquin El Chapo Guzman Loera, with the terrorist Al Qaeda, Osama Bin Laden, who was killed last year in Pakistan, saying that even if take years, criminals must pay for their actions.

Napolitano added that the eyes are placed on groups of terrorists, and “we will be persistent, consistent and robust when confronted.”

On the possibility of comparing the drug trade to terrorism, she said “I think that terrorism is a global threat, all countries are fighting it, the information exchange agreements and collaboration is important.”

In Juarez Salon Interior Ministry, Napolitano said that “the community of nations working together which increases the chances of preventing a terrorist act.”

She stressed that “drug trafficking is a threat, but must be addressed differently, it is a different type of crime, so it is important that we act not only on a bi-national, but regionally to combat drug supply illegal. “

Joint effort

Poire and Napolitano agreed to strengthen cooperation to combat terrorist infiltration in the region and orderly repatriation of Mexican migrants.

Both governments will work to prevent international terrorism in Mexico avoiding the entry of any person belonging to a criminal organization or persons threatening the security of both countries, for it will speed up and expand the exchange of information with opportunity to take the preventive measures and appropriate operational.

To drive traffic and combat human trafficking, “crime that respects no geographic boundaries,” said Interior Minister, agreed to launch a project with the Central American countries which will work collaboratively to dismantle the networks and lead to justice the criminals who commit “crimes as despicable.”

He also noted that Mexico and the United States will begin as soon as a pilot program of repatriation of Mexican nationals takes the lessons and progress that has been carried out in the frame, cited an example, the Voluntary Repatriation Program to Interior, to improve border security and that of its own nationals to facilitate their return to their home communities with full respect for their human rights.

Assessed progress in implementing various programs to facilitate the movement of nationals between Mexico and the United States, among which is the Global Entry, through which the user can enter the territory of another country with much more ease and speed.

He said this mechanism will start soon at airports in Mexico City, Cancun and Los Cabos for U.S. citizens who visit our country as tourists or business, may come more quickly and make their immigration with certainty and efficiency. This will encourage more tourism and trade between the two nations.

The cheapest

Joaquin El Chapo Guzman, leader of the Sinaloa cartel is one of the world’s most wanted criminals and the magazine Forbes considered one of the 100 most powerful men on earth.

His criminal organization with tentacles in 48 countries was strengthened after his escape from prison in Puente Grande, Jalisco, in 2001 in a laundry.

The Sinaloa cartel has a bloody dispute with other criminal organizations, particularly with Los Zetas, and with the Armed Forces.

Controversial Error

Major newspapers and news agencies circulated that Secretary of Homeland Security of the American Union, Janet Napolitano, said: “It took 10 years to catch Osama, you know what happened and the same will happen with Guzman.”

Origin

Stenographic version released by the Interior Ministry said the following:

“Well, I tell you something, it took 10 years to catch Osama Bin Laden, we find it and you know what happened. I believe that the same will happen to Guzman; the only thing I am suggesting is that we are persistent when we are close of evil and damaging to countries, yours and ours. So this theme is continued in a comprehensive manner. “

The original

But Napolitano said: “Let me just say, it took us 10 years to find Osama Bin Laden, and you know what Happened there. I’m not suggesting the Same thing would happen with Guzman , but I’m suggesting That We are persistent when it comes to wrong doers and Those who do harm, in Both of our countries. So that issue continues. “

Translated into Spanish, she said, “Let me say, it took ten years to find Osama Bin Laden, and you know what happened there. I am not suggesting that the same will happen to Guzman, but suggesting that we are persistent when they get bad actors and those who do harm, in both countries. So the issue remains. “

The clarification

However, hours later, the Interior Ministry said that there was an error of translation in the press conference that provided the head of the agency, Alejandro  Poire and Secretary of U.S. Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano.

The blunder was attributed to an interpreter for the Government, that Napolitano would have suggested that Joaquin Guzman Loera would have the same fate as Osama Bin Laden, who was killed by an elite squad of United States last year.
