A Mexican judge said Monday that the country can extradite Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman to the U.S.
The judge, who was not identified, said extradition can move forward if Mexico’s foreign ministry approves it within 20 days. The defense also has the right to appeal, Fox New reports.
A Mexican security official said Guzman is lodged in a less-secure prison in an area controlled by his Sinaloa cartel.
“El Chapo” broke out of prison in 2001 and 2014.
