U.S. judge will not dismiss accused Mexican drug lord El Chapo's indictment

A U.S. judge on Friday rejected an effort by Joaquin Guzman, the accused Mexican drug lord known as "El Chapo," to dismiss a massive international narcotics conspiracy indictment on the ground he was extradited improperly to Brooklyn.

While not challenging the merits of the case, Guzman's lawyers claimed that the indictment violated the extradition treaty between the United States and Mexico because Mexican authorities initially agreed to extradite their client only to southern California or western Texas.

The lawyers questioned how Mexico could have suddenly consented to have U.S. authorities hurry Guzman to Brooklyn in New York City to face charges other than those for which his extradition had been sought, violating the so-called Rule of Specialty.

But in a brief order, U.S. District Judge Brian Cogan said Guzman had no legal right to challenge the Brooklyn indictment because Mexico had not objected to it.

Cogan also said the federal appeals court in Manhattan, whose jurisdiction includes the Brooklyn courthouse, upheld this principle in late July in an unrelated case.

"Here, there is no protest or objection by Mexico, nor is there an express provision in the extradition treaty between the United States and Mexico," Cogan wrote. "Therefore, defendant's motion to dismiss the indictment based on an alleged Rule of Specialty violation is denied."

Michelle Gelernt, a federal public defender representing Guzman, in an email said her office was "disappointed, but not surprised" with the order.

"We still believe Mr. Guzman's rights under the treaty were violated, and given that other circuit courts give the defendant the right to object to violations of extradition treaties, hope that the Supreme Court will decide this issue favorably to Mr. Guzman," she said.

Prosecutors accused Guzman, 60, of running a global cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine smuggling operation as the leader of the Sinaloa Cartel, and playing a major role in a decade-long Mexican drug war where more than 100,000 people have died.

Guzman faces life in prison if convicted. He is being held without bail..............

'El Chapo' has deteriorated mental state, lawyer says
Nov. 3, 2017 -- A lawyer for Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman requested a medical examination of his client, saying harsh jail conditions are impacting the accused Mexican drug lord's mental state.
Quote:
Defense attorney Eduardo Balarezo sent a letter to a federal judge Thursday asking for a neuropsychological exam for Guzman. "it is plain to the defense team that something is not right with Mr. Guzman," the letter read. Guzman's lawyer has repeatedly criticized his client's conditions in jail. Guzman escaped from prison twice in Mexico so he is being held in a high-security section of the federal jail in Manhattan. He is isolated from other inmates and visitors for 23 hours a day with 1 hour for exercise.

Balarezo's letter says Guzman is allowed minimal contact with his defense team and family. He also complained of "frigid" cell temperatures, lack of clean bed linens and fresh air, and constant lighting in his cell disrupting his sleep. In October, Balarezo asked to be able to have in-person meetings with Guzman, who was being kept separate by a partition. U.S. District Judge Brian Cogan said the men may have a slot through which to pass papers.


A lawyer for Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman said that in addition to minimal contact with family and lawyers, the accused Mexican drug lord is being kept in frigid and dirty conditions.

Balarezo said Guzman has complained of auditory hallucinations, depression and a feeling of persecution, and he believes the government is recording his visits. "Counsel has noticed that Mr. Guzman has begun repeating himself often and sometimes forgetting what the discussion is about," Balarezo wrote. "In addition to his apparent mental decline, Mr. Guzman also suffers from myriad physical problems, including constant headaches, ringing in his ears and throat pain.

After his capture in 2016, Guzman was held in a Mexican prison prior to his extradition to the United States. He complained of jail conditions there, too, accusing jailers of torture. "He told me verbatim: 'Every two hours at night, they wake me stridently for roll call. ... They are converting me into a zombie, they don't let me sleep. What I want is, nothing else, for them to let me sleep,'" his lawyer, Juan Pablo Badillo, said at the time. Guzman wrote a letter to another lawyer in Mexico saying a barking dog outside his cell "scares my sleep."

"El Chapo" -- meaning "The Short One" or "shorty" -- so dubbed because of his 5-foot-6-inch frame, was first captured in Guatemala in 1993 and again in 2016. Guzman's cartel is credited with dominating the illegal drug market in nearly the entire United States, according to a report by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. The report states the criminal organization is most powerful "along the West Coast, through the Midwest and into the Northeast."
