Mexico: meeting with Sean Penn ‘essential’ to recapture drug lord

The world’s most wanted drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman was recaptured on Friday, six months after his second prison break.

Rolling Stone magazine published an article by Hollywood actor Sean Penn on Saturday based on his secret interview with Guzman.

Mexican Attorney General Arely Gomez said a line of investigation had been opened into the meeting between Guzman and Penn in early October at a jungle hideout.

Mexican Actress Kate del Castillo accompanied Penn to the meeting at an undisclosed location.

Gomez said that Mexican investigators were following the movements of one of Guzman’s lawyers who accompanied them, not necessarily Penn or del Castillo.
