A judge in Mexico has granted a temporary stay of extradition for the Mexican drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán until arguments can be heard on two appeals filed by his lawyers.
Guzmán’s lawyer, José Refugio Rodriguez, said one of the appeals argued that the statute of limitations has run out on some crimes Guzmán is accused of in the United States. The defense also argues that some of the accusations against Guzman are based on hearsay, not direct evidence.
Rodriguez said the appeals were filed late Monday in courts in Mexico City.
