There have been several legal defenders that “El Chapo” and his relatives have been detained, such as his son Ovidio and his wife Emma Coronel.
It was during the hearing that took place this Monday, January 23, that the person in charge of administering justice explained that it will be until the first days of March that the US Department of State will have a limit to present the application folder so that the defendant is transferred to said country, this in response to the request for presence issued by a Court of the District of Columbia.
“March 5, 2023 is the deadline for the requesting State to formulate the respective formal request”
It should be remembered that the possible release of the alleged offender could be given because it was for extradition purposes, which is why the US was urged to act in the process so that it can conclude the process in the best way.

The limit granted came just five days after a federal judge granted a new provisional suspension of the extradition process to the member of Los Chapitos, thereby delaying the action of the federal administration to hand him over to the US authorities. .
Ovidio Guzmán had already escaped, but something made him return home according to Anabel Hernández
The investigative journalist revealed details of the capture of the drug trafficker that were not disclosed in the official version
It was the Fifth District Judge in Matters of Amparo and Federal Trials of the State of Mexico (Edomex), Alfonso Alexander López, who granted such a precautionary measure so that El Ratón cannot be handed over to the Court of the District of Columbia —who requested his presence in the courts to be able to file charges against him for his alleged participation in acts of drug trafficking as part of the Sinaloa Cartel.
“(The foregoing has the effect that) the direct complainant is not extradited and remains at the disposal of this court of protection, in what corresponds to his personal freedom, in the place where he is confined and at the disposal of the responsible judge”
Likewise, it was reported that said measure will be in force until the final suspension is granted, which may occur at the hearing to be held next Tuesday, January 24; Meanwhile, Guzmán López will remain in the Altiplano prison.

Despite the foregoing, the case has not been calm and has had constant changes of positions, since on January 13 a district judge denied “the definitive suspension in terms of this incident” because it declared itself lacking legal competence , after he announced the resolution for the trial that was filed against Guzmán López.

On January 5, the son of “El Chapo” Guzmán was captured, however, there was no pronouncement by the head of the FGR
Although the response was not favorable to the intentions of the defendant’s team, they had hours to challenge the decision, so they made a new attempt, but it was denied on January 18.
One of the pieces of evidence that the defense team has presented to stop the development of the extradition process was a complaint for alleged physical and psychological abuse, as well as the lack of communication with his family while he was in custody by the federal authorities.
However, the judge of the Sixth District of Amparo in Criminal Matters, Juan Mateo Brieba de Castro, granted the first provisional suspension on January 9.
