The duplication of dates is due to the doubts of the judge of the case, Brian Cogan, that the parties have enough time to prepare the trial, which accumulates more than a million documents and numerous evidence of audio recordings.

To get well, Cogan scheduled two tentative dates at once, in case at some point it was necessary to postpone it for some reason. The resolution was decided at a hearing held this Wednesday in the same court in Brooklyn, New York, where Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán was already tried, sentenced and convicted.

Both the prosecution and defense of what was the brain of the so-called “war against narco” that the government of then President Felipe Calderón deployed had proposed autumn 2022 as the time to start the trial. The calculation of the United States government is that it will last about eight weeks.

García Luna faces an indictment in the United States for three counts of drug trafficking and one more for false statement.
