Chapo has become Mexico's most whining inmate in history...he should not have escaped Altiplano, seems he was much more comfortable there.
The defense team of lawyers Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman Loera filed in a Mexican court an appeal to request an extra blanket in Ciudad Juarez Prison, because, "he is very cold".
Silvia Rocio Delgado, lawyer of former leader of the Sinaloa cartel, quoted by the news website Milenio, said his client is very cold due to a wave of freezing temps affecting the state of Chihuahua, where the criminal is incarcerated .
Meteorological reports indicate at this time of year in Ciudad Juarez to 5 degrees Celsius (41F) and maximum to 21 degrees Celsius (69F).
"My client said that he has been very cold and scared with the freezing we have in this city," Delgado, who served the appeal before the Sixth District Court said.
The request is that Loera Guzman is given an extra blanket, he has already been provided, according to his lawyer, a very thin and insufficient blanket to cope with the low temperatures.
"It's amazing that we have to resort to move around a federal court to ask for a blanket," said the lawyer.
