The lawyer Juan Pablo Badillo Soto revealed that the authorities who wanted to make the arrest did not have the location and presentation order for extradition purposes, so they could not arrest him.

“The family of ”El Chapo” is a Christian family and those who have gone to ask for help have had it,” said the defender.
“I understand that he, ie Ovidio, was subjected to a deep interrogation and as a result of not finding enough crime elements to be able to arrest him, deprive him of his freedom, and by the superior order of the president he was released,” he explained.
He highlighted the work of the authorities of not having applied in this case the famous “Fugitive Law”, as was customary in previous administrations.
When they were questioned about whether “El Chapo” Guzmán already knew about Ovid’s arrest, they declared that “he must know by now.”
The lawyers also recalled that the family of the Mexican drug trafficker plans to build the first indigenous university in Badiraguato, Sinaloa.
They pointed out that for this project they will have the support of several foundations, and they expect President Andrés Manuel López Obrador to contribute by laying the first stone , together with María Consuelo Loera, the mother of the boss.
“The family of Chapo Guzmán and he , himself, ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán have decided to build the first indigenous university of Mexico in Badiraguato, so what we are waiting for is that President Andrés Manuel López Obrador in the next trip to Sinaloa put the first stone together with the mother María Consuelo Loera Pérez ”, so they concluded the press conference.
