He was sentenced in July 2019

This arrest comes two years after the high-profile trial in New York of Joaquin Guzman, now 63, who was convicted of widespread drug trafficking between Mexico and the United States when he was the head of the Sinaloa cartel. "El Chapo" was sentenced in July 2019 to life imprisonment.

A count of conspiracy to distribute drugs in the United States has been brought against Emma Coronel Aispuro, who prosecutors also accuse of helping her husband escape through a tunnel in July 2015 from the Mexican prison in which he was being held and for having prepared a new escape after the capture of "El Chapo" by the Mexican authorities in January 2016.

The joint efforts of the United States and Mexico in the fight against trafficking drugs were undermined by the arrest last October in Los Angeles of former Mexican Minister of Defense Salvador Cienfuegos.

However, a month later the US Department of Justice dropped the charges against the former minister, who returned to Mexico where he was subsequently exonerated.
