Damaso Lopez is claimed to have been in charge of getting sorted out Guzman’s escape from a high security imprison in 2001.
He at that point joined the cartel and wound up one of the medication ruler’s nearest partners.
He was caught last May and is seen by the US as a key observer for the situation against Guzman who is in a US imprison.
Damaso Lopez is known as “The Graduate” since he contemplated law and was a senior authority in the Mexican jail organization framework.
Captured a year ago in Mexico city, he ascended in the association of the Sinaloa cartel to wind up one of its pioneers.
After Guzman’s capture in 2016, Lopez began a wicked fight with Guzman’s children for control of the cartel.
At the season of his capture a year ago he was accepted to have been looking for an organization together with Guzman’s opponent, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel.
Guzman is confronting drug trafficking and scheme charges.
