The prison authorities of U.S they moved to a new prison to Dámaso López Serranogodson of Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán Loera, after receiving death threats for testifying against one of the members of the Sinaloa cartel.
As published by ABC7 on Tuesday, known as "Mini Lic" they changed him to a federal jail in Oklahoma, transferring it from the New York correctional facility where it was located, after a judicial document of the case against a member of the cartel Chapo reveal that Lopez was a target for having testified against Jesús Raúl Beltrán León.
The Mexican Beltrán León, who was a close collaborator of Chapo, was sentenced on August 6 in Chicago to 28 years in prison for his role in coordinating drug trafficking for the Sinaloa cartel in the United States.
According to judicial documentation, Chapo allies in the Chicago correctional facility, where he was at that time "Mini Lic", they tried unsuccessfully to beat up the witness in retaliation for their collaboration with the Prosecutor's Office.
The authorities' concern, after it was revealed that they wanted to "split their heads," caused Lopez Serrano to be discreetly transferred from New York, where he was until now, to the Oklahoma prison.
These facilities are used in particular for prisoners who require special protection and, for the most part, spend short periods of time there until they find a permanent destination.
The special concern of the authorities for the welfare of the "Mini Lic" is explained because the drug dealer has yet to testify in various trials.
López Serrano pleaded guilty in January 2018 to having imported thousands of kilos of heroin, methamphetamines and cocaine into the United States, six months after surrendering to the agents of the country's Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA).
