The drug trafficker Joaquin Guzman Loera, El Chapo, was transferred on the evening of Friday May 6 to prison known as Cefereso 9, located just a few miles south of the U.S. border, in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua.
According to the anouncement made by federal authorities, Guzman arrived around midnight in a medium size jet to Abraham González airport in Ciudad Juarez, and from there he was transferred by helicopter to the prison, which is located about 10 miles south of the city.
The transfer to Cefereso 9 may be only temporary because it is speculated that in the next few hours “El Chapo” will be extradited to the United States.
Gilbert S. Gonzalez, a retired DEA agent made the following statement to the USA TODAY.
“I am sure that the U.S. authorities are looking forward to extraditing him to the U.S. and the fact that he is in Juarez is a very clear sign that extraction” is more of a possibility, said Gonzalez, who worked for the DEA for more than 24 years and is now executive director of the Texas Narcotic Officers Association. “I think they are looking forward to extradite him to the U.S., because the prison Cefereso in Juarez is not exactly a maximum security facility, especially to house someone of Chapo Guzman’s reputation and propensity for violence.”
