 Apparently his stay at Altiplano has upset the poor little love, guards wake him up every four hours to make sure it really is still him in the cell and he can’t take it anymore.

Joaquin Guzman, AKA ‘El Chapo’ has been moved to another prison in Mexico to await his extradition to the United States.

Mexican security officials have admitted his new temporary home, the Ceferesco Prison on the outskirts of Ciudad Juarez is nowhere near as secure as Altiplano where he was previously held. Ceferesco also happens to be under the control of the Sinaloa cartel, which just happens to be the gang he was leader of before his capture.

You just couldn’t make this stuff up could you?

Michael Vigil, former head of international operations for the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), said sending Guzman to a prison in territory under the control of his Sinaloa cartel “doesn’t make any sense. He has that part of his empire, he has the infrastructure there and he has people who would assist him in terms of engineering him another escape.” (source)

Guzman faces drug charges in the United States and his lawyer has said that he would plead guilty in order to serve his time outside of the harsh prison system in Mexico.

Really?

The harsh prison system that saw him having what can only be described as a suite of rooms, top rate food and visits from attractive senoritas during one of his previous visits with the authorities. That harsh prison system?

Apparently his stay at Altiplano has upset the poor little love, guards wake him up every four hours to make sure it really is still him in the cell and he can’t take it anymore.

As a mother of three I get that, four hour feeds are a bitch…

The Sinaloa cartel has been called the largest and most powerful drugs cartel in the Western hemisphere. It’s an alliance of the top capo’s in Mexico who rely on corruption and bribery, and if that fails, murder to stay on top of rival cartels.

Taking it’s name from Sinaloa State in Mexico they have a massive reach covering every major city from New York to Buenos Aries. Turf wars with the Juarez and Zeta cartels have resulted in the deaths of thousands of people during the last decade.
