INTERNATIONAL: El Chapo to be extradited to New York

160108133325-el-chapo-2014-file-exlarge-169NEW YORK POST – Mexico’s most notorious drug kingpin is bound for Brooklyn, sources told The Post on Monday.

Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, wanted in several US jurisdictions, will be brought to Brooklyn federal court first, with the transfer likely to happen next month, law enforcement sources said.

Once the world’s most-wanted fugitive, Guzmán has been held in a Mexican prison since he was recaptured for the second time in January after escaping through an elaborate tunnel.

On Monday, a federal judge in Mexico gave a green light to his extradition to the US, where he faces charges for murder, kidnapping and drug smuggling.

“He will likely be extradited [to Brooklyn] in June. That’s the word,” said a source.
