Chapo's wife speaks publicly for the first time since his extradition

Chapo’s wife breaks her silence outside courtroom

The young wife of Mexican Joaquín El Chapo Guzmán , spoke for the first time on Tuesday, April 17, 2018, since her extradition to the United States more than a year ago and said she was worried about his health.

Emma Coronel a 28 years, mother of twin girls, he had with the former head of the Sinaloa Cartel, complained that cannot visit her husband or talk to him on the phone after a hearing in the Federal Court of Brooklyn, where on September 5th  the trial against her husband will begin.

"I have not seen him for 15 months, I see him in the Court nothing more. I do not have any kind of communication with him, neither visits nor calls. The only ones who see him are the girls and the lawyers," Coronel said in Spanish..

The defense, with lead atty Eduardo Balarezo, complains about his clients  detention in almost total isolation since his extradition to the United States on January 19, 2017.

 "My concern is his  health because I know he is very bad psychologically, because of what the lawyers have told me, and it is what worries me, how will he come to a trial, if he is in  bad health?” asked  Coronel, married to El Chapo since 2007.

Unlike Previous court hearings, this time the twin girls were not present.

The former narco, in blue prison uniform, greeted his wife at the beginning and end of the hearing.

A new psychological evaluation of El Chapo has been ordered.  Chapo who starred in two incredible escapes from Mexican prisons, is locked in solitary confinement 23 hours a day and must speak with his lawyers through a glass, without privacy.

Balarezo, did not allow Coronel to answer questions from the journalists, and said that his client will undergo a second psychological evaluation in the next two weeks after a first one made in November.

"His mental state is deteriorating (...) Not only his memory (...) but the way he understands things. It's not the man I met the first time I saw him, "said Balarezo.

*At the hearing, the government asked Judge Brian Cogan to accept as evidence for the trial, that  the partial payment of fees from El Chapo to his lawyer, is money that authorities said could come from drug trafficking.

Balarezo insisted that his fees should not be accepted as evidence, because that would force him to become a witness during the trial and could not therefore defend El Chapo more.

"He has a point," Judge Cogan said, and promised to study the matter for the next hearing, which will be held on May 30.

"They (prosecutors) have a lot of evidence in the case, why do they need proof of payments?" Balarezo told reporters.

"If we are witnesses, we cannot be lawyers."

Between 800 and a thousand people will be requested from July 31 to be possible juries in the process against El Chapo, which will last about three to four months. They will have to fill out a questionnaire that asks them, for example, if they watch television series about drug traffickers. Finally 40 people will be selected, and the day that the trial begins, on September 5, the final 12 jurors and six substitutes will be selected.

*Chivis Note:

With regards to the issue of the government request to have the defense attorney’s payment presented at trial, they hope to use it as evidence of El Chapo’s “unexplained wealth”.

Chapo’s lead attorney, Eduardo Balarezo has naturally objected, and stated to the court that if the court allowed its admission, then he may have to become a witness and thereby would not be able to defend him.


Judge Cogan told the government they have a hard sell and that if they really need to use that evidence than their case has problems. Basically he let it be known that he was not inclined to allow it.

    2. @8:49 I get it, you thought that was clever and funny. Now let’s get back to reality. If Chapo does go to ADX, he will have his own cell and only one hour out of it. If by chance, and this is a long shot, he was in general population, his name alone would ensure he is protected. Other prisoners gonna be cheerleading in order to get in good with him so in turn they can set something up outside of there. Prison is more political than Capitol Hill.

    5. 12:14 Population ? If he goes to general population , the middle aged men that he will be doing his time with haven't yet been born . If he lives that long , the young guys will be saying "that old weird short guy, he was like a famous bank robber or some shit back in the day , maybe a safe cracker .

  5. Sad story, dumb chapo should have gone out like a boss he claims he is in his fake corrido music! Now he is in isolation, that there is an example for the next capo who gets caught. They are better of dead with that type of treatments, not saying they deserve nothing better but, you know.....who's next? Caro quintero or Mencho? Maybe even mayo.. It's going to be interesting when they catch Mencho though, he's one tough mutha..

    1. Easier said than done. Me personally, I’d rather get the isolation and at least see my daughters and talk to them as they grow older. Counsel them on the business and set up the future for my legacy. Being dead is totally overrated.

    4. Damn dude...Just curious,who is it that you hate
      If you were hoping for a shootout so chapo would/could have been killed,then what about the possible death of some of those coming to arrest him
      Do you just hate all of them or Do you just love chapo so much that you rather he be dead than suffer the way he is now

      Delete
    5. 12:17 He cant counsel shit from where hes going. Besides kids never have the talent the dad had to run a cartel. Cartels usually die with the capo. Did Arellano, carrillo, or beltran kids keep the legacy as strong. Guzmans aint no different. Its all downhill from here on.

      Delete
    3. 11:25 Just so you know, the original snitches were Italian Mafia leaders. Happens every time. The leader saves his own ass by ratting on all his slaves. Happens today, happened decades ago. Strangely though, Chapo hasn't snitched on anyone in his circle. El Mayo is a confirmed snitch, though. He ratted out Guzman's hitman, Antrax, to save Zambada's ass. Didn't work though. And everyone's already forgot that Mayo is the snitch.

  15. What about the people that Chapo had Killed. They will never see or hug their loved ones again. She is worried about his health? What about the people he murdered. How is their health? A normal person would run away from someone like him. Or better yet not get involved with him in the first place.

  16. Chapo will die in prison, all the cartel cheerleaders that idolize him will say he is going to be out by Christmas but are clueless on how the law works. I am sure this is not a game he's playing, isolation and jail will break the strongest mind, specially under his situation. Now we can say chapo didn't have a clone like many people here were commenting smh

    ReplyDelete
  17. Every prison in the US has an infomory, like a mini hospital, if Chapo is feeling ill a doctor can see him. Why complain, he gets 3 meals a day, one hour of sunlight. A warm shower.

  18. Chapo is getting One way ticket straight to ADX, he might get special treatments like a TV and radio if he talks to the DEA, but he's never getting out of ADX after those twins from Chicago turn witness in court, chapo is convicted of moving tons of cocaine and just 1 kilo can get you life in jail in america.

      --Joseph Weichselstein a 3 time comvicted drug trafficker just got 17 months prison time and had a nice plush job waiting for him the whole time plus a million dollar apartment rent free.
      --other New York rivals and a Ricky Ross alias "Freeway Rick" also got a lot of impunity to keep quiet about their very highly placed parnas, their grameros always get stuck, like pigs.
