Guatemala apologizes for Rumor of El Chapo's Death

Borderland Beat
MEXICO, DF (Ap). - The rumor about the alleged murder of Joaquin El Chapo Guzman in the region of El Peten, Guatemala, during a confrontation dissipated Friday when the Guatemalan Interior Minister, Mauricio Lopez Bonilla, publicly retracted that information. The original news was broadcast Thursday night which unleashed a wave of reactions in the media and social networks.

The official said two Sinaloa Mexican drug traffickers were killed in a clash with the police and one victim had a physical resemblance to the leader of the Sinaloa cartel. That information immediately bounced to the point that all the newspapers put the story on their web portals and some carried it over to their print editions, even though the Mexican officials Miguel Angel Osorio Chong, as the head of the Interior did not confirm the information.


After an information vacuum,  first thing Friday morning the government of Guatemala retracted the information in an interview with United Emisoras Unidas, the Interior Minister said up until 2:00 am local time (08:00 GMT,) they had not been able to confirm whether or not there was armed confrontation. Security forces carried out air patrol to ascertain the information. Lopez said that there was confusion on the passing of information that came from residents in the community of San Valentin in San Francisco , in the northern Petén, who warned of the passage of a convoy, an armed confrontation and possible deaths."We have no report of a confrontation between the police and the army (with drug)", but a light aircraft and helicopters were flown the region to verify that fact, And apologized for his mistake:" 

The Guatemalan Interior Minister Mauricio Lopez Bonilla, apologized, "There was a misunderstanding, I apologize."  Speaking to the same station, he said there was an hypotheses based on testimonies of people, interrogations with soldiers and police, the gathered information has not verified a confrontation There was a mix up. They were talking about the information that was being generated in the area, the possibility that there might be a crime scene where it was said the deceased could have had the characteristics similar to those of El Chapo. "
That misinformation was enough to keep Otto Perez Molina president , and Ulises Anzueto and Defense Minister, in suspense until two in the morning of Friday awaiting  more details and verification.

El Chapo is the top leader of the Sinaloa cartel and the most wanted man in at least three countries: Mexico, the United States and Columbia. In1993, the leader of the Sinaloa cartel was arrested in Guatemala and delivered precisely to Mexico, where he was held until 2001, when he escaped from the high security prison in Puente Grande, Jalisco. Since then the drug lord has been on the run.
After retraction from Guatemala government official, Mexico's Interior Ministry, Miguel Angel Osorio Chong, confirmed that the alleged death of El Chapo in Guatemala was no more than a rumor, the origin attributed to the media."There were rumors that we have not even been able to determine their exact origin, There's been talk of some reporter from Guatemala who said the first instance on the topic. Our own security forces in Guatemala have not found the place of that alleged encounter, vehicle or person, I do not know if it was malicious, but it was a leak "he said.

Interviewed after meeting with executives of the Business Coordinating Council (CCE), the official reiterated that the capture of El Chapo is a goal of the Mexican state."We hope to reply as soon as possible, the country's security forces, the Army itself,   are behind different tracks that will allow us to achieve his arrest," he said upon leaving the meeting held at the Club de Industriales in Polanco.

  8. Everything started in Sinaloa since the 1800s when there was just campesinos they where the first drug traffickers in Mexico. And you kno who inspired pancho villa???? El rayo de Sinaloa heraclio bernal and you kno who inspired el rayo Jesus malverde. The golfo wear the second they only sold booze during prohibition it was not until the 1970s when they started trafficking drugs. Do you kno wear they got opium.

    Many trace Sinaloa's first narcotics crop--opium--to the numerous Chinese settlers who arrived in the last half of the 19th century. "It was a good agricultural place for it. And generation after generation the people just did it, they perfected it," explains Edward Heath, former Country Attache for the DEA in Mexico. But large scale production of opium didn't start until the 1940's and World War II. Japan gained control of the Asian opium supply and the U.S. military needed morphine for its soldiers. So the U.S. turned to Mexico for help. "We were concerned that our supply of opium or morphine would be cut off because the world was at war. So we needed a supply close by. But,that was one of those black box things. Who knows when it happened, who did it, and why." says Edward Heath. During this period of a government-tolerated opium trade, many Sinaloans made their fortune. "Everybody was growing it, it was institutional. Some government officials bought the harvest from the farmers to export themselves. There were even soldiers up in the hills caring for the plants," explains Dr. Ley Dominguez, a 77-year-old life long resident of Mocorito, one of Sinaloa's most notorious opium regions. After Japan's defeat, however, the U.S. no longer needed Sinaloa's inferior strain of opium. But many farmers continued to produce opium and heroin; operations became more clandestine, and a smuggling network was set up.

  10. The British Empire under Queen Victoria fought two wars for the right to traffic opium in China. Those wars occurred in 1840-1843 and 1857-1860 if I'm not mistaken, while at the same time making the Chinese to cede Hong Kong. That is why the Chinese have and developed a distrust of foreigners. As far as where the cartel leaders tend to come from, about the only ones that don't come from Sinaloa are the ones from cdg;those have been from Tamaulipas, particularly from Matamoros. Z-40 from is from N. Laredo.
