“Sol Prendido” for Borderland Beat
Mike Vigil, former head of international operations for the DEA, commented that Emma Coronel, El Chapo’s wife, “will never live in peace” after her release.
“El Chapo Guzman has many enemies, not only in Mexico, but also in the United States. So possibly they will try to harm her or her daughters.
So I think Emma Coronel will never live a quiet life, she will always have to be on the lookout for a possible murder,” said Mike Vigil.
During an interview with Azucena Uresti on Radio Fórmula, Mike Vigil said that Emma Coronel can live a normal life, however, she has to report frequently to the authorities.
“She is going to have to report to a probation officer that will be frequently, it all depends on what the court said, every month or every three months, that will happen for four years,” he mentioned.
Finally, he commented that Emma Coronel was probably able to cooperate, this after not releasing photos of her release.
“I think that if she was collaborating, they are going to put her in the protected witness program, this program where they have to start from zero,” he mentioned.
