A Mexican judge will measure the removal of medication kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman this month, and he could be in US care later this year, a US official said Wednesday.
The US government official told AFP that the judge in Mexico City is relied upon to manage on the removal on September 26, however Guzman could bid the choice.
His legal counselors say the procedure could take months or years to finish up, yet the US official expects the removal of the Sinaloa drug cartel pioneer to move much speedier.
"We are still on track for him to be removed before the end of the year," the authority said on state of secrecy to have the capacity to talk unreservedly about the case.
Mexico's remote service gave the green light to Guzman's removal in May, however the infamous Sinaloa drug cartel pioneer got a directive in June.
On the off chance that the judge rejects Guzman's lawful request, his legal counselors would have 10 days to engage a higher court.
One of Guzman's legal counselors, Jose Refugio Rodriguez, said the lower court judge could issue his decision on September 26 however that "typically" such choices can take a couple days or even weeks.
Regardless, Rodriguez said his customer educated him to claim the distance to the Supreme Court if important.
The US official, be that as it may, said the Supreme Court could essentially decline to take the case, making ready for his removal.
'Guzman 'Not Well'
The effective medication master was captured in January, six months after he boldly got away jail in a 1.5-kilometer (one-mile) burrow, mortifying President Enrique Pena Nieto's organization.
Pena Nieto had contradicted Guzman's removal before his July 15 avoid, wanting to arraign the dangerous detainee in Mexico.
Be that as it may, the president approached the lawyer general to speed up the removal after Guzman's January capture.
