The controversy is not over for the Mexico-US actress Kate del Castillo.
In January, Mexican newspapers revealed that investigations by authorities indicated that the Castillo, the owner of "Honor" brand tequila , based in the U.S. state of Delaware. Also communications between Castillo and Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, revealed that Chapo wanted to do business with the actress.
The respected Mexican newspaper, El Universal reported having access to documents showing that El Chapo poured money into Castillo’s company. The company is a limited liability company established on September 10, 2014 under the registration number 5601359.
Prosecutors have ordered that actress Kate del Castillo be located and brought in for questioning about her encounters with drug cartel kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, Mexican officials said Thursday.
Authorities have been seeking to interview del Castillo for an investigation of possible money-laundering involving Guzman and the actress' tequila business, after last month's revelation that she helped broker a meeting between the capo and actor Sean Penn. She has not been accused of any crime.
Two security officials confirmed that federal prosecutors issued the order because the movie and telenovela star did not voluntarily appear before authorities to give a statement as requested. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.
