A court determined that a federal judge from Mexico City will be in charge of hearing the amparo appeal filed by Rafael Caro Quintero, founder of the Guadalajara cartel, against the arrest warrant for extradition to the United States.

Last September, the sixth district judge for federal criminal proceedings in Mexico City refused to accept jurisdiction on grounds of territory to hear the amparo trial and ordered the file to be returned to the sixth district court for amparo and federal trials in the state of Mexico, since the Mexican capo is being held in the Federal Center for Social Readaptation (Cefereso) number 1, in Almoloya de Juárez, state of Mexico.

Therefore, the magistrate resolved the jurisdictional conflict that arose between said federal courts. He determined that the one in Mexico City is responsible for knowing the amparo trial.

In the next few days, the sixth amparo judge will decide whether to admit the appeal and, if so, grant Caro Quintero a provisional suspension against the acts claimed.

The founder of the Guadalajara cartel is required by Washington to stand trial for the murder of Enrique Camarena, a member of the United States Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), in February 1985 in the city of Guadalajara, Jalisco.

Until 2013, Caro Quintero was serving a sentence for said murder, but he was released from prison through an injunction, which was reversed two years later by the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN).

The United States government asked the Mexican authorities for him to be extradited in order for him to appear before the justice of that country, which the SCJN authorized on October 9, 2019. He remained a fugitive from justice for almost nine years until in July past he was arrested by elements of the Secretary of the Navy.
