Mexican drug lord, El Chapo cries out from US prison


Joaquin El Chapo Guzman

Mexican drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” popularly known as Guzmán, has accused authorities of preventing him from making phone calls or receiving visitors in the maximum security United States, US, prison where he is serving a life sentence.

El Chapo made his complaint known to the District Court Judge Brian Cogan in the Eastern District of New York.

He decried his inability to speak with his twin daughters since his sentencing.

El Chapo wrote: “The facility stopped giving me calls with my daughters and I haven’t had calls with them for seven months.

“I have asked when they are going to give me a call with my daughters and the staff here told me that the FBI agent who monitors the calls does not answer, that’s all they’ve told me.

“I ask that you please authorize her to visit me and to bring my daughters to visit me since my daughters can only visit me when they are on school break, since they are studying in Mexico.”

El Chapo said being barred from receiving outside communication was “unprecedented discrimination.”

“It is unprecedented discrimination against me, they have decided to punish me by not letting me talk to my daughters,” he added.
