Family of the capo claims he's being treated unfairly, but authorities cite responsibility to provide law and order

No truces nor pacts with organized crime, assured the national commissioner of security, Renato Salas, when he rejected the press-ready declarations of the presumed daughter of Joaquín Guzmán Loera that a pact existed between drug traffickers and the federal government.

In a message to the media, the commissioner asserted that the family and defense of Guzmán Loera have put together a media strategy to discredit the federal government, accusing it of violating the rights of the leader of the Sinaloa Cartel.

“What remains clear is that the government of this republic doesn’t make truces, alliances or pacts with crime. The facts have proven this … the Mexican state is not going to give in to blackmail or try to resolve things in the media that should only be judged in courts,” he said.

 

He clarified: “We are not going to give in to speculations whose only objective is to divert attention, victimize the subject so that we let down our guard.”

Since his detention on January 8, the family and lawyers have held that Guzmán Loera is woken up every four hours for roll call, which is causing severe harm to his health.

This weekend Rosa Isela Guzmán, presumed daughter of El Chapo, gave an interview to the UK Guardian in which she asserts that her father had arrangements with the federal government. The capo’s close family say they don’t know the woman.

In a message it was indicated that Altiplano’s maximum security ward’s methodology would continue.

“Now, the type and application of the security protocol is due to the methods used in solitary confinement, which are public knowledge and social interest. Society is interested in orden and that the guards at this solitary confinement section maintain control, because if not it could put into danger the tranquility and integrity of the prison,” he said.
