The Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman Loera sent a message from prison regarding the release of his son Ovidio Guzman Lopez.

Through one of his legal representatives, Guzmán Loera said he felt calm that his son had been released by the Mexican authorities who held him for hours pending an arrest warrant while the criminal organization deployed an operation with more than 200 hit men who faced state forces with a balance of 14 dead.

Through his lawyer, Mariel Colón, Guzmán Loera pointed out from ADX Florence maximum security prison in Colorado that "The fact that he knows that his children are safe and sound right now,  obviously gives him peace of mind."

In an interview with the US network Telemundo, Colón said that as his client has access to a television, "obviously he could see it through the media ... He is at peace because he knows that his children and family members are fine.”

When asked about Ovid's place, compared to the rest of the capo's children, the lawyer said that Guzmán Loera “loves all his children, loves them very much, they are very special for him; obviously, the little girls (twins),  are the spoiled ones. But he loves all his children equally. ”

Colon, who is identified by his close relationship with Emma Coronel, wife of the drug trafficker, insisted on the confinement situation in which the founder of the Sinaloa Cartel remains. [Colon, was a first year attorney when joining the Chapo defense team.  She is the one who was caught facilitating Emma with a cell phone in the court room so that she could communicate with the capo]

“The conditions have not improved. Before he had access to the patio, outside, five days a week, but they rescinded two days. Now he only has access for one hour three days a week. The remainder is spent in complete solitary confinement,” She said.

Guzmán was sentenced in July to life imprisonment and an additional 30 years in jail in the United States.
