Actor Sean Penn met with Sinaloa Cartel drug-kingpin El Chapo for an interview on behalf of Rolling Stone magazine; and the feds were tracking him – that’s how they caught El Chapo.
Who’s going to try and protect Sean Penn from the Sinoloa cartel retaliation now?
( Via Daily Mail )Sean Penn unwittingly led Mexican marines to El Chapo after meeting him for an extraordinary interview – and is now under investigation.
The sensational meeting took place in October and was arranged by Penn, Mexican actress Kate del Castillo and a fixer, with the permission of the Sinaloa cartel.
El Chapo admitted in the bizarre interview to being the biggest drug trafficker in the world and said he sent engineers to Germany to learn how to build the tunnel he would eventually use to escape a maximum security prison.
The cartel boss was captured on Friday in a daring 4am raid by Mexican marines and was returned to Altiplano jail.
The double Oscar-winning actor’s meeting with El Chapo led to the gun battle in which he was captured, an official said.
Penn and del Castillo are now under investigation in Mexico, ABC News reported.
In an article written by the Mystic River star for Rolling Stone, El Chapo says: ‘I supply more heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine and marijuana than anybody else in the world. I have a fleet of submarines, airplanes, trucks and boats.’
Despite his notoriety, up until this point the Mexican gangster had always insisted he was ‘just a farmer’.
Penn wrote that El Chapo sent engineers – who were already accomplished in tunnel-building from the multitudes of underground paths they have built across the U.S.-Mexico border – to Germany to learn how to construct the tunnel he fled down as he escaped from prison in July last year.
The actor claimed the cartel leader was concerned about the low-lying water table beneath the jail. (read more)
