Guzman was recaptured in January and initially placed back in the Altiplano prison. However, authorities transferred him in May to a federal prison near Ciudad Júarez in the northern state of Chihuahua, saying security measures were being improved at Altiplano.
The cartel leader is awaiting extradition to the U.S. and his lawyers complained that the new location made it difficult for them to remain in contact with their client.
Guzman’s lawyers have not spoken with their client since last Thursday, Refugio said. So they had not informed him of his son’s abduction, but he could not say whether other relatives had told him.
