The imprisoned leader of the Cartel de Sinaloa intended to combat the detention order confirmed by the First Unitary Court of Sinaloa on charges arising from his capture on February 22nd, 2014 in Mazatlan.
The formal processing of Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman Loera was upheld for his alleged responsibility in the commission of crimes and possession of firearms for the exclusive use of the Armed Forces, and Ammunition also reserverd for exclusive use the Armed Forces.
First was the Tenth District Judge in the State of Sinaloa, who on the 10th of March 2014 ordered that the Capo be detained, after he was caught at the Miramar Condo in Mazatlan. Followed shortly after by the First Court of Sinaloa that confirmed that decision on April 30th of that year.
Guzman Loera obtained an injunction to overturn the formal arrest and imprisonment warrant from 30th June, but the injunction had an improper basis with legal motivation. A Judge of the First Unitary Court again declared formally against "El Chapo" on November 14th.
Against this resolution, the Sinaloan Capo moved a new Justice Guarantee that has now been denied, a Second Unitary Court Judge ruled that the evidence is legally sufficient and effective to prove the body of the crime and probable responsibility.
The firearms and bullets found on Joaquin Archivaldo when he was detained together with his "secretary", Carlos Manuel Hoo Ramirez were a 40mm grenade launcher, a single grenade for this type of launcher, a FN Herstal 5.7 mm pistol known in Mexico as Matapolicia ( cop killer), a .38 super revolver, a rifle of .223 calibre ( probably a AR15 variant), 60 rounds of ammunition for the FN Herstal 5.7mm mata policia, and 24 rounds of .223 calibre ammunition, among others.
"El Chapo" Guzman has reserved the right to declare anything in relation to these charges, however when questioned by the Federal Prosecutor, he replied that he doesnt not belong to any cartel, that he is a farmer who does not know anyone involved in organised crime and that it is not his desire to denounce anyone. He also emphasized that the staff involved in his arrest respected his human rights.
