El Chapo’s son released to save lives–president

MEXICO CITY: Mexico’s President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Friday (Saturday in Manila) said he supported the decision to back off from an attempt to capture a son of imprisoned kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, to prevent the loss of lives. The decision was jointly made by the Security Cabinet, which is made up by the ministers of defense, navy and security and civilian protection, said Lopez Obrador at a press conference in the city of Oaxaca in southern Mexico. “I supported that decision … It is not about massacres. Capturing a criminal can’t be worth more than people’s lives,” he said.
