Mexico’s Attorney General office has ordered for Kate Del Castillo to be located as it mounts pressure to make the actress linked to drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman testify.
Attorney General officials said Del Castillo ignored the agency’s initial subpoena. Del Castillo has been ordered to present herself and authorities have been ordered to fins Castillo as soon as possible.
Mexico’s federal judiciary council on Wednesday confirmed Del Castillo filed a court petition seeking an injunction against her possible arrest as it relates to her relationship with Guzman. She has not been charged with a crime yet, but may face contempt charges if she fails to report.
Del Castillo was subpoenaed in January as part of a money-laundering investigation related to her links with Guzman and into the finances of her Honor Del Castillo tequila brand in an effort to determine if drug money went into her business.
