Recommendation: No prior subject matter knowledge required
Jose Refugio, lawyer of El Chapo Guzman affirms that the capo told him that he doesn't fear prison, but he bids that the no longer isolate him because " they are going to send me mad". Authorities reply: he is not in a spa.
Joaquin Guzman Loera is going bald because of anguish at the conditions of his isolation in the Ciudad Juarez prison in Chihuahua, assures Jose Refugio, Laywer of the leader of the Sinaloa cartel.
He confirms that in the recent visit he made to El Chapo, he said this to him" all that is happening with the treatment I am receiving, I feel very bad", he said, a doctor had already seen him and told him that he has anguish.
"He said that he always has three police within one meter of him, who write down everything that he does, and that is the cause of his anguish", said his lawyer in an interview with Ciro Gomez Leyva of Grupo Formula.
He signalled that he saw El Chapo Guzman in a state of anguish and desperation.
He added that his client said to him, " I don't have fear of being in prison, but they have me isolated, and in my condition, they will send me mad, this is form of psychological torture". (Otis: not sure how he claims isolation when there are 3 police always within a meter of him).
"I would prefer that they beat my physically, that the torture was physical beatings whose pain would pass and leave me, but no they have chosen to kill me slowly", asserts that the capo said this to me said his Laywer.
" El Chapo is not being tortured, but this is not a spa: Commissioner of Federal Penitentiaries
Eduardo Guerrero, Commissioner of Federal Penitentiaries, said that the treatment that Joaquin Guzman Loera receives, conforms with the protocols of security and guarantees of the National Commission for Human Rights.
He negated that the leader of the Sinaloa cartel is being tortured in Cefereso #9 of Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, where he was transferred to on the 7th of May.
"He is subject to protocols of security of the CNDH. He is not being tortured, if he feels that way because he is inside prison, this is not a spa, its a Federal prison", he said in an interview with Ciro Gomez Leyva.
He assures that they are respecting the human rights of the capo, and that at no time has he been physically beaten.
"If he feels that way, he is inside a Federal prison, this is not a field day", and he said that if he is losing his hair, " its a condition of his age".
He said that the only recommendation the CNDH has made is for his hours of sleep, and he assures that El Chapo Guzman sleeps seven hours per day. (Otis: how about all the widows of the men he's killed who have to work 3 jobs to support their single parent families, I bet they don't get seven hours sleep a day).
"He sleeps from eleven pm to six am" he said.
He assured that the state of health of El Chapo is perfect and that they don't know if he is doping.
