In an about face, El Chapo files for extradition delay

Lucio R. Borderland Beat

After El Chapo’s PR campaign, having his attorney and family report of the torture and abuse he has been subjected to in prison, the message he sent was, he wanted out of Mexico and wanted extradition to the United States ASAP, but that was a month ago, and now?……"he will do everything in his power to prevent extradition.”   Below an article from El Pais

Few things strike fear into the heart of Joaquín El Chapo Guzmán more than the prospect of spending the rest of his life locked away in a maximum security facility in the United States, and the drug kingpin is prepared to go to any lengths to prevent that from happening. In the three months following his arrest in Mexico, he has already presented seven appeals for protection against extradition. Over the same period he has lodged another 14 appeals aimed at improving the conditions he is being held under in prison, all of which have been dismissed by the Mexican authorities as delaying tactics. 

Guzmán has been indicted in Brooklyn as well as Chicago, Manhattan, Miami and other cities where his cocaine ring is said to have operated in the United States. A 2014 indictment filed in a Brooklyn federal district court accuses Guzmán – who was recaptured in January after an audacious escape from prison last summer that deeply embarrassed the Mexican authorities – of helping to run the world’s largest drug-trafficking organization, the Sinaloa cartel.
“All he needs to do is to accept extradition and the next day we’d send him to the United States”, Mexico’s Attorney General’s Office
New York would likely be the location for Guzmán’s trial because this is where Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who helped bring him to justice, had previously served as the US attorney for the Eastern District of New York, which is based in Brooklyn. “Under treaty agreements, the US can decide where the prisoner will go,” says a source at the Mexican public prosecutor’s office.

But without El Chapo’s agreement, it could take years before the US authorities get their hands on him.

That said, the Mexican authorities, beginning with President Enrique Peña, have made it clear that El Chapo’s extradition is a priority. Analysts say that even in the best-case scenario, he is unlikely to be shipped north before the year is out.

Guzmán has already managed to escape twice from jail in Mexico, and his continued presence in the country puts the government under pressure to prevent a third prison break. In response, the authorities have effectively created a prison within a prison at the El Altiplano high-security facility, within which he is constantly moved from one cell to another and is watched over round the clock by a team of 35 guards, who use specially trained dogs to check his food for poison.

Under such conditions, it seems unlikely he will be able to repeat the feat of escaping via another tunnel, as he did last summer, but his capacity for intimidation and corruption is a factor that the authorities will have to take into account if they want to hold on to him. At the first prison where he was held, Puente Grande, he bought off some 62 prison guards. An investigation is underway as to how many prison officials knew of the 1,500-meter tunnel 30 meters below El Altiplano.

The question of El Chapo’s extradition has also created political problems for President Peña Nieto. During the first two years of his mandate, extraditions of drugs traffickers fell sharply, with Peña Nieto insisting in the case of Guzmán that he would first have to face Mexican justice before the United States could try him: “El Chapo has to stay here and finish his sentence; then I will extradite him, in around 300 or 400 years,” boasted former Attorney General Jesús Murillo Karam in 2014.

But El Chapo’s escape put an end to this policy, and Mexico is now keen to hand the prisoner over to the US authorities. What was initially interpreted as recognition of the failure of the country’s institutions and the country’s ability to keep a prisoner behind bars has now become a show of strength in the face of a powerful drugs trade and a skeptical public. El Chapo is aware of this and will do everything in his power to prevent his extradition.

  2. Cut off his outside criminal communication . His assets will be pillaged and he will become insignificant as a power broker . This is the beginning of his has been-ism . Seize everything that can be connected to him and spend it on the poor in non narcotic producing areas . Fuck the short bastard !

    1. The assets will be divided among the politicians that he fed and are now biting his hand, the poor don't need any help, the poor are poor and will always be poor, they are used to be poor, they need to go to school with their empty panzas, get into politics, go to harvard or yale, and come back to sell la caballada...
      But no, no help will help the "poor"

  4. This dumbass midget is the one responsible for destroying the sinaloa cartel from the inside. Not zetas not politicians or.government. this midget put the finger on his own allies out of stupidity and jealousy. Thanks to him most of the sinaloa cartel bosses are dead or in prison and so is he. And anyone who says el chapo is powerful or the biggest narco in history has no shit of an idea of the sinaloa cartel. Under him the cartel has gone.to shit. Believe me. Dont get any ideas just from listening.to corridos most ef them are.all fake or exagerated.

  12. Mexico gov started treating him better that's why the delay give 2 years before he "dies" or "escapes" again

  13. As I see it, his previous request for extradition had two principal objectives: first, to force the Mexican government to negotiate with him to prevent him from going to the U.S. Second, to draw attention to himself so that the Mexican government would not disappear him or murder him in jail.

    Now, that he has decided to fight extradition tells me that he has negotiated a deal with the Mexican government. I wonder why he thinks he can trust the government to keep its end of the bargain.

    When the Chapo announced that he wanted extradition, the government could have sent him north the next day. But the government was more worried about him going north than Chapo was.

  16. Mexico will send Chapo to USA fast because it is costing way to much the way they are housing him. the old guard in Mexico politics is being ousted. Mexico is done or at least wants to appear to be done with corruption so send Chapo to USA let him hang whatever Mexico Government people out to dry and get back to making money and having a good time peacefully

  17. The ADX in Florence, CO will effectively end El Chapo running CDS. He will be in isolation and unable to communicate with his cronies.
