The newly elected Mexican president, Enrique Pena Nieto, refused saying that they were capable of holding Guzman.
Nieto is under pressure to clean up the judicial and political systems in Mexico. He failed to act quickly or to find the bodies of the missing education students who were “disappeared” by police. His wife has come under criticism for her purchase of a mansion from a government contractor.
His effort to recapture Guzman by placing road blocks and patrolling bus and trains stations appears to be window dressing. It is known that a helicopter landed near the building where the tunnel ended around the time of Guzman’s disappearance.
The Sinaloa chief could retire and disappear if he so chose. He is reputed to have a personal fortune of over one billion dollars.
