SOURCE: El Chapo Will Be Extradited to New York City as Early as Next Month
El Chapo is headed to the Big Apple, sources say.
Law enforcement sources told the New York Post that drug lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman will first be transferred to Brooklyn, New York when he is extradited to the U.S.
That move could happen as soon as next month, the sources said.
A federal jury in Brooklyn indicted El Chapo in 2014 on charges of laundering $14billion as the head of the violet Sinaloa Cartel, believed to be the world’s largest drug-trafficking organization.
The indictment against El Chapo – which translates to ‘Shorty’ – accuses him of ordering hit men to carry out ‘hundreds of acts of violence’ including murders, torture, kidnappings and assassinations.
