After the escape of Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán from the maximum security prison of El Altiplano, the Office of the Attorney General and the Ministry of the Interior are conducting various investigations on the subject.

The lawyers of the leader of the Sinaloa Cartel and lawmaker Guadalupe Sánchez López, from the Sinaloa state congress, have been called to declared as witnesses.

After a meeting between Attorney General Arely Gómez and the Ministry of the Interior, Miguel Ángel Osorio Chong, it was reported that so far 49 people have declared in relation to 'El Chapo's' escape from jail.

Meanwhile, the lawyer of the prison guards declaring in the offices of the Specialized Organized Crime Investigative Unit (SEIDO), Juan Sánchez Jiménez, denounced that the National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) denied them support and they have been incommunicated.

“They are beginning a process with contaminated proofs since the start and the most regrettable thing is that yesterday we called the CNDH for their intervention in order to be able to interview the detainees, and we were told that it was unable to do so, because certain matters could not be made public," he said.
