JAMAICA OBSERVER – The Hollywood-worthy recapture of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman took a stunning turn Sunday as authorities sought to question US actor Sean Penn over his interview with the Mexican drug kingpin.
A federal official told AFP that the attorney general’s office wants to talk with Penn and Mexican actress Kate del Castillo about their secretive meeting with Guzman in October, three months before his capture.
“That is correct, of course, it’s to determine responsibilities,” the official said on condition of anonymity, declining to provide more details.
A second federal official said it was unclear whether Penn and del Castillo, who brokered the meeting, committed a crime.
While a reporter could interview a drug cartel suspect, “they’re not journalists,” the official said.
