|Joaquin Archivaldo Guzman Loera " El Chapo "|
The Judge of the tenth District of Amparo in criminal matters for the Federal District accepted the jurisdiction to hear a guarantee trial promoted by the drug lord , Joaquin " El Chapo " Guzman Loera against his extradition to the United States of America.
The original demand was presented by the Attorneys of the ex leader of the Sinaloa cartel , before the Judge of the 16th district in Administrative Matters of the capital city of the country on Tuesday 20th of January, however the Court has declared itself incompetent to hear the matter which is of a criminal nature.
The written notes as an act , called for the Secretary of Foreign Affairs , among other authorities, trying to extradite " El Chapo " from the Federal Centre for Social Rehabilitation number one " Altiplano" in the Municipality of Almaoloya de Juarez, State of Mexico, to a different place that is internal and available to different district judges, and from there out of the country towards the United States of America via Mexico Federal District or another border, without the possibility to try something in his favour, pursuant to an order that we know has been turned to such effect.
The Amparo petition was promoted a few hours after the Attorney General of the Republic, Jesus Murillo Karam, expressed that no formal application for extradition had been received for the Sinaloan Capo, but they were very sure it would be very soon that the application would arrive.
Another constitutional lawsuit brought by " El Chapo " last November to the Eleventh District Amparo Court was dismissed, in the absence of the claimed request for extradition , deportation or expulsion from the country.
