'El Chapo' could be returned to prison he escaped

18 August 2016, 12:10

Mexico City - A lawyer for drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman says a Mexican judge has issued an injunction that could send Guzman from a prison in a border state back to the maximum security prison from which he previously escaped outside Mexico City.

Lawyer Jose Refugio Rodriguez said late on Wednesday that the government can appeal the decision and it could take three months to resolve.

Guzman was recaptured in January and initially placed back in the Altiplano prison. However, authorities later transferred him to a federal prison in the northern state of Chihuahua. Guzman is awaiting extradition to the US.

Guzman is a leader of Mexico's powerful Sinaloa cartel. On Tuesday, authorities in Jalisco state announced that his son was among six people abducted from a restaurant in Puerto Vallarta.
