Life imprisonment for ‘El Chapo’ – head of the largest-ever Mexican drugs cartel

Joaquin Guzman, internationally notoriously known as ‘El Chapo’, has been condemned to life imprisonment as well as a further 30 years of imprisonment by a United States Court.

‘El Chapo’, who is now 62, was head of the largest-ever drugs cartel between Mexico and the United States. He was found guilty of ten major accusations, including that of drugs-trafficking and money-laundering.

Guzman escaped from a Mexican prison in 2015 after digging an underground tunnel to escape but was caught six months later and extradited to the US. It is not yet known if he will appeal the sentence.
