Mexican President, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, discussed the release of Emma Coronel on Monday morning.

As is customary, the Mexican president held his daily morning press conference, during which the topic of Chapo’s wife was raised.

During ‘La Mañanera’, he was asked about the extradition of Emma Coronel, who was released in the United States.

AMLO stated that the matter of extraditing Chapo Guzmán’s third wife falls under the jurisdiction of the country’s Prosecutor’s Office.

On Monday, September 18, AMLO reiterated that the extradition request for Emma Coronel must be initiated by the Attorney General’s Office of the Republic.

Joaquín ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán’s third wife was released by the US government on Wednesday, September 13.

This has prompted questions to the president of Mexico about a potential extradition for Emma Coronel.

The mother of two of Chapo’s daughters was detained in the United States for nearly three years on charges related to drug trafficking.

The United States Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) confirmed Coronel’s release last Wednesday, after nearly three years in detention.

The third wife of ‘El Chapo’ had been in community confinement in a «halfway house» in Long Beach since May 30.

Now, Coronel will be on probation for the next 48 months, a period during which she must remain within the assigned judicial district.

In addition, she must inform the authorities of any change of address and seek employment.

Her detention began in February 2021 when she was arrested upon landing at Washington-Dulles International Airport.

She was accused of helping her husband, Joaquín ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán, manage the criminal empire of the Sinaloa Cartel.

She was also accused of conspiring in the drug trafficker’s escape from El Altiplano prison in Mexico in 2015.

Coronel’s release has generated significant interest, especially as it coincides with the extradition of Ovidio Guzmán to the United States, one of ‘El Chapo’s most sought-after sons.

According to the news agency EFE, the President of Mexico emphasized that the case of Emma Coronel falls under the jurisdiction of the Attorney General’s Office of the Republic.

It is they who must request the extradition of ‘El Chapo’s wife to the US Government.

Such a request also requires the authorization of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

This has ignited a debate regarding the role Mexico should have in this matter and whether Coronel should face legal proceedings in her home country.

This news continues to stoke the debate on the relations between Mexico and the USA in matters of security and justice.

It also underscores the pressure the Mexican Government faces to effectively address the issue of organized crime and the extradition of individuals involved in illicit activities to the United States.

The case of Emma Coronel underscores the intricacy of the bilateral relationship concerning security and organized crime.

Moreover, it raises questions about judicial cooperation between Mexico and the United States in the battle against drug trafficking and the pursuit of justice.
