MEXICO CITY — A second Mexican judge says extradition of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman can go forward.

A federal judge ruled May 9 that the extradition of the drug lord to the U.S. can move ahead, but the Foreign Relations Department must still approve it and the defense can appeal.

Mexico’s Judicial Council, which oversees Mexico’s federal judges and tribunals, said the judge, who was not identified, had agreed that the legal requirements laid out in the extradition treaty between the two countries had been met.
