Colombian Celebrity Juliana López Sarrazola Faces Possible Death Sentence In China

Popular model, TV personality/presenter and member of the Las Divas football team Juliana López Sarrazola was recently detained at the Baiyun International Airport after "hallucinogens were discovered inside her laptop." Drug trafficking is a serious charge across many Asian countries. One source identifies the drug involved as "cocaine."

Word is that Sarrazola's boyfriend (ID'd by one source as "Juan Esteban Marín") is also being held in China for alleged drug trafficking. According to, the Colombian Foreign Ministry said through a statement that from the moment the news broke consular assistance has been provided to the young model and her family.

Alejandro Duque, technical director of the Football Divas, says that Sarrazola booked a trip to China to buy clothes, shoes and other products to later be re-sold in Colombia. Other reports indicate Medellin authorities are advancing an investigation because the young couple had been contacted by a man in a shopping mall days before their trip, in which they may have been "convinced" to transport drugs.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking.
