Recommendation: No prior subject matter knowledge required
The Mexican reporter Lydia Maria Cacho Ribeiro, assured in an interview with the United States chain Telemundo, that the structure of the Sinaloa Cartel is led by Alfredo and Ivan Guzman, sons of Joaquin Archivaldo Guzman Loera, alias "El Chapo", who recently was re-apprehended and imprisoned in the Cefereso #1 "Altiplano".
"Joaquin Archivaldo Guzman Loera appears to me one of the most dangerous criminals in the country. His two sons have controlled the Cartel for the last two years", she said, " and the authorities know this", she affirmed that "El Chapo" was retired from criminal activities.
"He is already beyond good and evil; He has been retired for two years and the authorities, and the FBI and Interpol and the CIA know it perfectly. He is not the operator of the Cartel", said Cacho.
He already is conducting political operations of a another type, and with the money that he has already laundered he is making illicit operations, and the authorities know that", said the reporter.
Cacho assures that true risk for the enemies of "El Chapo" Guzman is that all the information he has sees the light of day, well for that he has been preparing all his sons and his associates in the United States, with whom he had been planning an information war to expose proofs against politicians in the United States and Mexico.
For them, anticipated Cacho, the enemies of "El Chapo", among them some Mexican Politicians and United States Politicians, have been planning for years a strategy that confirms a series of documental proofs, like videos, photographs, and checks from foreign accounts, with which to confront the business partners of the Sinaloan Capo in his drug trafficking business.
The reporter said that the Courts of the United States have 82 cases against the Capo and his allies, but that the presence of the CIA in Mexico, the informants of the FBI and the United States anti- drug agency the DEA, about political links with the Cartel, as well as confessions that the narco trafficker and his family have made to the press recently, complicate the panorama.
The sons of El Chapo are drug addicts, affirms a Colombian writer
For his part, the writer and ex Colombian drug trafficker, Andres Lopez Lopez, affirmed that two of the nine children of El Chapo, Joaquin Jr and Griselda, a product of his second marriage, have touched bottom with their drug addiction.
He never thought he would produce in the flesh the consequences of the product of a rich and powerful man, narrated Andres, in one of his 69 chapter of the biographical book on the Sinaloa Capo: Joaquin El Chapo Guzman: The man of drugs.
Lopez Lopez, one of the leaders of the Norte de Valle Cartel and know by his nickname "Florecita", said in an interview with the daily Excelsior that the Capo intended to sabotage the history where it speaks of the problems with his children in relation to the women who determined part of his life.
"I don't write books to order, and would not lend my writing so that El Chapo can authorize or edit it. I am not interested in giving my soul to the devil", said the writer who is now based in the United States.
Also the author of "El Cartel de los Sapos", affirmed that he's had to duck all kinds of sabotages on the part of the people of the most famous Capo in the world who was determined that this history would never see the light of day, from the intent to completely buy the first edition, to death threats.
"I believe that Chapo Guzman is going to find the book either good or bad, the decisions he has made in his life have been influenced by the many women that he has had", affirmed "Florecita", about the debilities of El Chapo.
The Politicians and criminal gangs discredit the reporters
Cacho also affirmed in the interview with Telemundo, to be a friend of the actress Kate Castillo, and insisted that all the leaks against the protagonists of the series "La Reina del Sur", are the result of political persecution.
The Mexican reporter, who was persued and tortured on order of the then Governor of Puebla, Mario Marin Torres, sustains that in Mexico whomever exposes the links between some Politicians and criminal groups , represent a danger to the system and they will be sought out and silenced.
"The first event is to attack us to discredit us", she said in an interview after the presentation of her most recent book " In search of Kayla", in which she addresses the issue of human trafficking.
"In the case of Kate there is a brutal persecution to discredit her, Why? Because they dread that this film will eventually be made, and they dread that the true history of how the criminal organizations operate, and those are the people who are attacking it", said Cacho.
The reporter signalled that in the case of Kate Castillo, there is no proof that can send her to prison, despite the repeated attempts of the authorities to discredit her.
