Mexico Moves Closer To Extraditing Drug Lord El Chapo To U.S.
Huffington Post - 9 months
MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico approved the extradition of drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman to the United States on Friday after receiving guarantees he would not face the death penalty, and the kingpin's lawyers vowed to block the move. Juan Pablo Badillo, one of Guzman's lawyers, told Reuters he would file "many" legal challenges in the coming days, which could delay the drug lord's eventual extradition for weeks. Guzman, head of the Sinaloa drug cartel, was the world's most wanted drug kingpin until his capture in January, six months after he broke out of a high-security penitentiary in central Mexico through a mile-long tunnel burrowed right up into his cell. Mexico's foreign ministry said he would face charges including drug trafficking, money laundering and murder in U.S. federal courts in California and Texas. The ministry said it was given "sufficient guarantees" by the U.S. government that Guzman would not be executed. It was not immediately clear where Guzman wo ...

Sean Penn -- Dead Man Walking, for Real This Time
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Suppose that you are a ruthless drug lord, even a diminutive one, running a completely illegal billion dollar a year commercial operation that sources drugs in central America, processes them, and then arranges to smuggle them across the border to the apparently infinite U.S. market. Since everything that you do in your business is outside the law, you have to live by a different set of business practices -- you have to intimidate, harm or kill people who let you down, who try to compete with you, who violate agreements with you or fail to act as promised. No taking them to civil court and suing for specific performance. No use of the rules of the American Arbitration Association. The people who try and compete with you for a share of this enormously dangerous but wonderfully profitable business -- did we mention that you don't declare your income or pay silly things like taxes or fees for business licenses, or dues to the local chamber of commerce -- would like to destroy your organ ...

Why Salma Hayek Wants The El Chapo, Sean Penn Interview Controversy To End
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Salma Hayek has had enough of the controversy over Sean Penn’s interview with drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán. The Mexican-born actress spoke out at a press conference promoting her film “The Prophet” in Mexico City over the weekend, and explained why audiences should stop fixating on the interview between the actor and the kingpin. “It creates a focus on a Hollywood melodrama that does not advance us on the steps that need to be taken to resolve the problems on either side,” Hayek said, according Spanish newspaper El País.   Hayek said she had not read the actor’s interview in Rolling Stone. Yet, she insisted that people’s fixation on it and on Mexican actress Kate del Castillo’s involvement in the secret meeting are not what the world should be focusing on. “If Kate del Castillo did, if el Chapo did, if there was an interview, if there wasn’t an interview!” Hayek said after a journalist addressed the topic, reported the Spanish-language Associated Press. “It’s very ...
