Mexican drug lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman’s wife Emma Coronel, on Sunday complained that her imprisoned husband was losing his mind after being ‘sex-deprived’. Coronel said that Guzman was suffering from hallucinations following the cut down of his love-making time from 4 hours to 2. Guzman’s attorney Jose Refugio Rodriguez told reporters that the drug lord did not know the difference between night and day anymore and lived in constant anguish.The Sinaloa drug lord’s wife
The Sinaloa drug lord’s wife is also known to have filed a complaint with the National Human Rights Commission and said that her husband was being held in isolation and could lose his mind or die. Guzman, who is known to have escaped twice from high-security prisons in Mexico also told his doctors that the guards were pushing him into “psychological torture”, according to report by the LA Times. Guzman said that the lights of his cell were kept constantly on to keep him awake to attend his roll calls every 4 hours.
Jail authorities, though, denied his claims of torture and said that he was merely creating a scene to slow down the process of his extradition. Renato Sales Heredia told a radio station that 35 relatives have already visited Guzman since his transfer to the Cefereso No.9 prison in Juarez; also considered the worst in Mexico. Guzman had earlier escaped from prison in 2001, amidst a tonne of laundry and was managed to be recaptured only in February 2014. He managed the escaping feat again in July 2015, through a tunnel in his cell at the Altiplano prison but was again captured on January 8.
Guzman currently faces an extradition to Brooklyn, where he is to be tried in a federal court on charges of 12 murders. Guzman’s doctor had earlier reported that his psychological conditions were worse than physical as the drug lord had said that he would prefer to be beaten up.
