Mexican drug trafficker Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán, who is serving a life sentence in the United States, is calm after his son Ovid was released by the authorities who had arrested him last week in an operation in Culiacán, Sinaloa, his lawyer said.


He is calm because he knows that his son (…) well, all the members of the family are well, they are healthy, they are safe, "said Guzmán's lawyer, Mariel Colón, who visited the capo in jail last Tuesday of maximum security ADX Florence, in Colorado, where he is serving his sentence.

This is all that was not known about the operation against Ovid

Colon, who was part of the legal team that led the defense of Guzman during his trial in the United States, revealed that "El Chapo" learned of the operation in which his son was captured because he has a television in his cell, so who "obviously could see it through the media."

On October 17, Ovid Guzman was captured in an operation in the city of Culiacán, in the northern Mexican state of Sinaloa, but the authorities decided to release him to prevent the death of civilians and members of the security forces, he explained the Secretary of Security and Citizen Protection, Alfonso Durazo.

The lawyer of "El Chapo" commented that the conditions in which her client is being held in the maximum security prison in Florence "do not improve."

He said that Guzman had access to the patio five days a week before, but now he can only leave his cell for one hour for three days, so the rest of the time is spent under solitary confinement.

On July 17, "El Chapo" Guzmán was sentenced to life imprisonment for more than 30 years, following a historic trial in a federal court in New York, where he was found guilty of 10 charges for drug-related crimes.
