Actress Kate del Castillo has legal woes.


Actress Kate del Castillo contested before an appellate court a federal judge’s decision that denied to issue an order to suspend leaking or divulging information from the preliminary investigation that links her to Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán Loera.

The complaint filed by Del Castillo’s defense was accepted by the First Appellate Court of the First Circuit, with its seat in Mexico City, as the respective reports were already requested by involved parties.

According to the judge’s decision, there is no proof that the Attorney General’s Office leaked details about the investigation that the Specialized Prosecutors for Organized Crime (SEIDO) carried out.

However, in the demand, the Attorney General’s Office was accused of being responsible for divulging if Guzmán Loera had or had not invested illegal money to launch Del Castillo’s tequila brand, called Honor del Castillo.

The third Mexico City penal district judge, when answering the petition, admitted that the claim was true. In other words, he made a decision which denied the suspension of Kate del Castillo, because the Attorney General’s Office denied being the source of the photos and documents that were published about the relationship between the actress and the Sinaloa drug cartel leader.

The complaint against the final suspension will take at least three months to resolve, according to the limits laid out by the Law of Amparo (a Mexican constitutional legal process that protects the country’s citizens and guards their basic human rights).
