Mexico City - Mexican authorities have issued an order for actress Kate del Castillo to be found and questioned about her links to drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.
Prosecutors want to haul her in as a witness after she ignored a request to appear voluntarily, Attorney General Arely Gomez told reporters on Thursday.
The attorney general's office is investigating whether Guzman invested in Del Castillo's tequila brand. A financial transaction involving illicitly obtained money would amount to money laundering.
“We will continue to exhaust all the legal possibilities to find the truth,” Gomez said.
The 43-year-old actress has dual US-Mexican citizenship and lives in Los Angeles, complicating attempts to compel her to testify.
