El Chapo's Lawyers Obtain Suspension of Arrest Order for Extradition

A court in Mexico has granted a request filed by El Chapo's lawyers to suspend the order of detention for purposes of extradition entered Wednesday. (Use google translate). The request for a writ of amparo against the detention order was filed Wednesday in the Fifth District court handling Amparo matters, the same day the judge in the Third District Court handling criminal matters granted the request for the detention order.

I think this means he can still be arrested, but he can't be extradited until he has an opportunity to present his defenses against extradition. [More...]

For anyone who understands Spanish (I can't understand it, even with Google Translate), here is the court docket for the case, 712/2015.

EN 29/07/2015, SE DESECHA PARCIALMENTE LA DEMANDA DE GARANTÍAS Y SE CONCEDE LA SUSPENSIÓN DE PLANO RESPECTO DEL ACTO RECLAMADO CONSISTENTE EN LA ORDEN DE EXTRADICIÓN.

In the list of "accuerdos", it says:

    for El Chapo.

    This means that he is afraid that the Gringos know where he is and that the Gringos were just getting their legal ducks in a row before moving in on him.

    He's going to have to move now and change lawyers and every time he does he makes himself vulnerable.

    Cat and mouse --

     

    Why must he change lawyers? (none / 0) (#3)
