Cartel Corner #47: 10 Things El Chapo Revealed in Interview


Last night, Rolling Stone magazine published an interview with Joaquín ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán Loeraconducted by Hollywood actor Sean Penn. Mexican actress Kate del Castillo was also present at the meeting, which took place last September 28. Penn later made a detailed narration of the events for the magazine, and recalled a 7-hour conversation with the drug lord who was absolutely unapologetic and seemed very much at ease while talking to the actor. In addition, Guzmán also dedicated a video interview to del Castillo and Penn. Here are 10 revelations the kinpin told the actor:

  1. He’s not a drinker: “I don’t usually drink,” he says, “but I want to drink with you.”
  2. He would like to invest his money: “[Guzmán] would aspire to the energy sector, but that his funds, being illicit, restrict his investment opportunities
  3. He gets his money laundered by corporations in Mexico and abroad: “He notes with delighted disdain several [companies] through which his money has been laundered, and who take their own cynical slice of the narco pie.”
  4. He knows he is the biggest drug lord: “I supply more heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine and marijuana than anybody else in the world. I have a fleet of submarines, airplanes, trucks and boats.”
  5. He jokes about Trump: El Chapo smiles, ironically saying, “Ah! Mi amigo!”
  6. He faces very few difficulties dealing around the world: “Of all the countries and cultures with whom you do business, which is the most difficult?” asked Penn. Smiling, he shakes his head and says an unequivocal “None.”
  7. He met Pablo Escobar: “Did you know Pablo Escobar?” asked Penn. “Yes, I met him once at his house. Big house,” Guzmán answered.
  8. He’s close with his mom: “All the time. I hoped we would meet at my ranch and you could meet my mother. She knows me better than I do. But something came up and we had to change the plan,” Guzmán told Penn.
  9. He’s interested in Hollywood: “He is interested in the movie business and how it works,” Penn said.
  10. He wanted to know if people in the U.S. were interested in him: Guzmán laughed when Penn told him that the even Fusion channel was airing a documentary about him, “Chasing El Chapo.”

Cartel Corner #44: Mexican Mayor Assassinated Hours After Taking Office, Dies Defending Her Family


The government of Morelos made the announcement that the 33-year-old mayor, Gisela Mota Ocampo, had been murdered inside her home in Temixco just hours after she had been sworn in as mayor of the city. Mota had won the election for mayor last June and was sworn in on New Year’s Day.

On Saturday morning around 7:30 a.m., an armed group entered Mota’s home, beat her and then shot her in the head. Paramedics arrived at 7:50 a.m. and confirmed she was dead.

Local reports say that after committing the crime, the assailants fled in a vehicle but local police pursued them killing two of the alleged killers in the chase.

The other two involved were arrested.

Morelos authorities announced that in addition to the two dead, there are a total of three detained, among them a minor, for the murder of the mayor of Temixco.

At a press conference, the Commissioner of Public Security in Morelos, Alberto Campella Ibarra, reported that among the three people arrested, there was a minor, an 18 year old man, and a 32 year old woman.

Accompanied by the attorney general of the state, Javier Pérez Durón, the commissioner explained that policemen affiliated with the Mando Único (Unified Command) carried out a search operation and tracked down those responsible.

According to Campella, during the persecution, the cops were attacked by the suspected murderers of Gisela Mota, so the policemen repelled the attack and killed two of the assailants.

Two vehicles, weapons, and cartridges were secured and presented to the attorney general’s office.

In a press release, the government of Morelos reported that a security protocol was implemented for the mayors of the state, including Cuernavaca, after the attack that led to the death of Gisela Mota.

The governor of Morelos, Graco Ramírez, also highlighted the meeting on Saturday afternoon between Graco Ramírez and Cuauhtémoc Blanco Bravo.

The governor assured the mayor of Cuernavaca that he has the support of the state government in regards to the issue of public safety.

In recent weeks, the governor sustained a confrontation with the mayor of Cuernavaca, Cuauhtémoc Blanco Bravo, in regards to the police.  The state government withdrew weapons and even radios from the security forces of Blanco, after the mayor should terminate the agreement with the Mando Único.  Yesterday, even the state governor called the former footballer “arrogant”.

On Saturday, members of the Counicl of Temixco announced three days of mourning for the murder of the municipal mayor and demanded that the government clarify the facts.

Meanwhile, the national leader of the PRD, Agustín Basave, lamented the murder of Gisela Mota, demanded justice, and sent out his condolences to the family of Gisela.

Both heroin and methamphetamine seizures are up nearly 300 percent in Arizona over the past five years, a Drug Enforcement Administration report said.

The report, released Thursday, said methamphetamine seizures have increased 294 percent. After the United States cracked down on chemicals used to make the drugs over the past decade, the DEA said drug cartels in Mexico have become the leading manufacturer and supplier of meth that winds up the United States.

The DEA said the cartels have “super laboratories” capable of producing hundred-pound quantities of the drug. The cartels have an easier time getting their hands on the necessary chemicals because of less-restrictive Mexican laws.

The American anti drug agency informed that the Colombian Guerrillas that have allied with Mexican Cartels in order to introduce tonnes of cocaine into the United States.

The revolutionary armed forces of Colombia (FARC) and criminal groups like the Sinaloa Cartel or the CJNG have allied in order to introduce cocaine into the United States, according to information published today by the American Anti drug agency the DEA.

“The investigations showed a working relationship between different fronts of FARC and the criminal Mexican organizations, including Los Zetas, the Beltran Leyva Organization, the Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generacion and the Sinaloa Cartel with the intention of transporting cocaine to the United States, stated the press release.
According to the DEA, the Mexicans have become the power in the USA drugs market because they have learnt how to produce heroin and they are not dependent on the Colombians to produce, a group that traditionally trusted the Mexicans and Dominicans for the sale of that substance inside the United States.

“There has been a change and now the Mexicans are producing Heroin, and before they were just transporting it for the Colombians. They responded to changes in the market, and became the beneficiaries”, added the Chief of the DEA, Chuck Rosenberg in a meeting with a group of journalists.
