MEXICO CITY | The dramatic escape on Saturday of the world’s most notorious drug lord has raised pressure on Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto to curb corruption and the drug gangs that play an outsized and violent role in his country.
Speaking from Paris, where he was beginning a four-day state visit just as Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman was breaking out of jail, Pena Nieto called the escape an “affront to Mexico” and promised a full investigation. But skepticism is rife in Mexico.
In February of 2014, when Guzman was re-arrested after a previous jail break, Pena Nieto said another escape by the drug kingpin would be “unforgivable.” Since the latest escape Pena Nieto’s critics have reminded him incessantly of that statement.
