Mexico drug lord loses bid to block extradition

blankociated Press | June 17th, 2014

Rafael Caro QuinteroA Mexican judge has denied a fugitive drug lord an injunction against any possible extradition to the United States, where he is wanted in the kil#i*gg of a Drug Enforcement Administration agent, judicial authorities said Tuesday.

The Federal Judicial Council said in a brief statement that the judge rejected Rafael Caro Quintero’s petition. It gave no other details.

The petition was filed by Caro Quintero’s lawyers on his behalf.

Caro Quintero hasn’t been seen in public since he walked out of a Mexican prison in August after an appeals court overturned on procedural grounds his conviction in the 1985 kidnapping, torture and murder of DEA agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena. After his release, Mexican prosecutors issued an arrest warrant when Mexico’s Supreme Court annulled the lower court’s ruling.

Caro Quintero had served 28 years of a 40-year sentence.
