Journalist Ciro Gomez Leyva published in his Twitter account an anonymous letter were it was informed that the sons of the Sinaloan Druglord "El Chapo" were psychically attacked during an armed clash.
The sons of Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman denounced an armed attack, according to journalist Ciro Gomez Leyva from his Twitter account.
According to the journalist, Ismael "El Mayo" Zambada was with them during the moment of the attack, however it is unknown if he resulted wounded during the attack.
Damaso Lopez, known as "El Licenciado", was a prior boss of the Judicial Police of the state of Sinaloa, Agent of the Public Ministry and Security Subdirector of the Maximum security Jail of Puente Grande, Jalisco, when Guzman Loera was incarcerated in Puente Grande.
The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), identified Damaso Lopez Nuñez as a main Liutenant of the Sinaloa Cartel, due to his drugtrafficking activities with Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman Loera and for playing an important role in money laundering activities.
|Letter received by Journalist Ciro|
The OFAC claims that Lopez Nuñez helped Guzman Loera to escape prison in 2001: "Since then he became one of his principal Lieutenants of the Sinaloa Cartel, and became responsible for shipments of tons of narcotics from Mexico to the United States".
The accusations, then, signal that one of the principal operators of the Sinaloa Cartel is behind the aggression to the sons of Guzman Loera, who has already been extradited to the United States.
Translation of the Letter:
During the 4th of February of 2017, El Licenciado Damazo Lopez organized a meeting were he requested the assistance of Mr. Ismael Zambada and the family of Joaquin Guzman due to claims that there was evidence that Damazo Lopez ordered the kidnapping of the sons of El Chapo, once we arrived at the meeting Mr Zambada and the Joaquin Guzman family realized that damazo lopez was not present, then the confusion started, a few moments later they started shooting the bodyguards of the Joaquin family, who were immediately executed in the spot, then we realized that we had been betrayed by "Licenciado damazo lopez" by he trying to kills us and eliminate everything by the roots.
Once we were able to leave the scene intact, Mr Zambada and the Guzman family ran away from the scene, and while running we found armed people at the service of Mr, Damazo Lopez shooting at us along our route, finally we lost them in the mountains without us knowing our exact location due to us having to run away several kilometers. Finally we found a small town and the local people provided aid once we were already hurt.
