El Chapo Asks Federal Judge to Suppress Statements Prosecutors Claim He Made

Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, the legendary drug kingpin,  has asked a federal judge in Brooklyn to suppress statements prosecutors claim he made during his January 2017 extradition to the United States, ABC News reports.

In a court filing Thursday, his defense attorneys said that it is not clear whether Guzman had been informed of his rights, the news station reports.

“Federal agents questioned Mr. Guzman as he was shackled on a DEA plane on its way to New York and the agents did not advise him of his rights,” defense attorney Eduardo Balarezo said. “As a result, Mr. Guzman felt that he had no other choice but to answer the questions put to him.”

Guzman’s trial is set in the U.S. for September.
