Drug kingpin ‘El Chapo’ sent back to same prison he escaped: Update

‘El Chapo’ Guzman has been arrested by Mexican security officials in his home state six months after a daring escape in the most high profile prison in the country. No one knows for how long the prison authorities will be able to keep him confined inside the prison wall.

In the meantime there are reasons to believe that the United States is all set to demand his extradition from Mexican officials. To be true, the US officials are worried that Guzman, who has twice escaped prison in Mexico, may try to give a slip to Mexican police once again.

Nonetheless US government is still not opening its stand on the issue of extradition. The U.S. Department of Justice said Friday it doesn’t comment on pending extradition requests “before they become the subject of public judicial proceedings.”Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman

Nonetheless the Department of Justice Peter Carr said: “I can confirm that it is the practice of the United States to seek extradition whenever defendants subject to U.S. charges are apprehended in another country.” Guzman is included in at least seven indictments in various U.S. jurisdictions.

In the meantime it is not a secret that there also is a provisional arrest warrant in Mexico on behalf of the United States that was issued more than a decade ago, Carr said. At that time the United States asked Mexican authorities to send Guzman to the United States for prosecution. Guzman escaped a Mexican prison in July, crawling through a hole in his cell block’s shower area into a lighted, ventilated tunnel, then to a half-built house.
