Mexico says seeking fast extradition of ‘El Chapo’ drug kingpin


DAVOS, Switzerland: Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto said Friday (Saturday in Manila) his country is working to extradite recaptured drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman for trial in the United States as soon possible.

The Mexican attorney general’s office is pursuing charges against Guzman while also working on his extradition, the president said at an annual gathering of billionaires and political leaders in the snow-covered Swiss Alpine resort of Davos.

“The instruction is to accelerate its work to obtain his extradition as soon as possible,” Peña Nieto said.
