Sean Penn and Kate del Castillo wanted for questioning

Mexican authorities want to question Sean Penn and Kate del Castillo about the Oscar-winning actor’s interview with drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman in Mexico,  a senior Mexican law enforcement official told CNN.

Penn secretly met with El Chapo for a Rolling Stone interview for seven hours, and del Castillo brokered the meeting.

Authorities want specific details on where the interview took place, CNN reported Sunday.

In the interview, El Chapo revealed the details of his drug operation, as well as his escape from prison last summer.

Penn said he used TracPhones “burners” to communicate with El Chapo’s team. “One per contact, one per day, destroy, burn, buy.”

The actor also said after flying to Mexico that he, del Castillo and their associates drove for hours to reach El Chapo’s hideout.

“We embark into the dense, mountainous jungle in a two-truck convoy, crossing through river after river for seven long hours,” he wrote.

As the elevation begins to climb, road signage announces approaching townships. And then, as it seems we are at the entrance of Oz, the highest peak visibly within reach, we arrive at a military checkpoint.”

He went on to say that Mexican officials were complicit in hiding El Chapo. In Penn’s words, authorities let the convoy through after they recognized one of the drivers, El Chapo’s 29-year-old son, Alfredo Guzmán.

“Two uniformed government soldiers, weapons at the ready, approach our vehicle. Alfredo lowers his passenger window; the soldiers back away, looking embarrassed, and wave us through. Wow. So it is, the power of a Guzman face. And the corruption of an institution.”

The Associated Press reported from Mexico that the interview with Penn ultimately led police to recapture El Chapo, who was taken into custody Friday in Los Mochis, Sinaloa after six months on the run.

El Chapo disappeared from Mexico’s highest security prison last summer, escaping via a mile-long tunnel that some said cost $1 million to build. Penn wrote in the article that the drug lord hired German engineers to build the tunnel.

I hope the U.S. government will deport Kate del Castillo and declare her a persona non-grata . She has lived in Los Angeles for years in order to escape the violence , extortions , and kidnappings in Mexico .  This grade D telenovela actress will soon be targeted for death  by the Mexican underworld whether or not  she and Penn provided crucial info that helped capture Chapo .

DISAGREE! Neighbors were the reason Chapo got caught. Kate will become a grade A director and actress, Sean Penn will be known as a person/actor/writer with no boundaries that can get an interview with almost anyone in this planet.

To further understanding of the dynamic of this threesome the following is proffered;  Sean Penn's cousin with whom he grew up in LA is a retired DEA agent and the cousins wife is a retired high level DEA supervisor.
