Mexico president sees no swift extradition of kingpin Guzman
Captured Mexican drug lord Joaquin "Shorty" Guzman faces an outstanding jail term in Mexico and any extradition to the United States is likely to take time, President Enrique Pena Nieto said on Wednesday. In an interview with broadcaster Univision, Pena Nieto suggested that Guzman, who was Mexico's most wanted man when he was arrested in the northwest of the country on Saturday, was unlikely to be handed over to the United States quickly. "The process of extradition can take time," he said, noting that Mexico's attorney general's office would need to consider a request on the basis of investigations it was carrying out against Guzman, who escaped from a Mexican prison in 2001. Guzman headed the most powerful drug cartel in Mexico and was responsible for a huge chunk of the cocaine, heroin and other drugs trafficked north to the United States.
