Mexican president vows to bring down violence after 'El Chapo' sentencing

APTOPIX El Chapo Prosecution Lawyer: ‘El Chapo’ was whisked away to Colorado supermax prison within hours of sentencing

A federal court in the United States of America on Wednesday sentenced former drug lord Joaquin Guzman to life after a long court tussle.

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador on Thursday blasted Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman's life sentence as "inhumane" - echoing comments made by the convicted druglord himself.

The 62 year old Guzman's sentencing comes after his conviction in February of this year after being found guilty in all 10 counts against him.

Experts say he will likely wind up at the federal government's "Supermax" prison in Florence, Colorado, known as the "Alcatraz of the Rockies".

But that changed after it became clear that behind the scenes there already was a plan in place 'to get him out of the city as soon as possible, ' Lichtman said. Wary of his history of escaping from Mexican prisons, U.S. authorities have kept him in solitary confinement in an ultra-secure unit at a Manhattan jail and under close guard at his appearances at the Brooklyn courthouse where his case unfolded. Cogan last month rejected Guzman's request for more time to exercise on the jail's roof after prosecutors said that would risk an escape.

Michael Cohen search warrant documents released
The documents then describe a string of calls over the next hour that Cohen made to Hicks, Pecker, Howard and again Trump. Prosecutors had previously asked the records remain sealed because they were still probing the payments.

Authorities were determined to prevent any repeat of the notorious narco's jailbreaks in Mexico.

Guzman was put in solitary confinement in a high-security wing of the Manhattan jail that has housed terrorists and mobsters. "This has been psychological, emotional and mental torture 24 hours a day".

For pretrial hearings in Brooklyn, authorities transporting Guzman to and from jail shut down the Brooklyn Bridge to make way for a police motorcade that included a SWAT team and an ambulance, all tracked by helicopters.

Before handing down the sentence, U.S. District Judge Brian Cogan said Guzman's complaints were minor given the "mountain range of evidence" against him detailing conduct he described as "evil".

Current inmates include convicted "Unabomber" Ted Kaczynski, Oklahoma City bomber Terry Nichols, the British "shoe bomber" Richard Reid and the Boston marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who is awaiting execution.
