MEXICO.- During this Tuesday, March 7, 2023, the hearing of Ovidio Guzmán López, better known as “El Ratón”, is held in the maximum security prison of the Altiplano for his appearance for a possible extradition trial to the United States .

The hearing this Tuesday in which the United States will try to have Ovidio Guzmán sent to that country will be held virtually, with the presentation of the first evidence obtained against him by the Department of Justice of the neighboring country.

The hearing of the Sinaloan drug trafficker this Tuesday is expected to last a couple of hours during the first tests of Judge Gregorio Salazar Hernández, of the Almoloya Criminal Justice Center.

However, on February 27, the American country formalized the request for the extradition of Ovidio Guzmán and delivered the necessary documentation to the Mexican government, for his probable transfer to the United States with the purpose of facing accusations for crimes related to drug trafficking among others.

The request was sent to the Attorney General’s Office (FGR) a few days before March 5 deadline set by a judge in Mexico for the United States to formally request the extradition of Chapo Guzmán’s son.
