Mexican President frowns at El Chapo’s life sentence in US

Intro

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has condemned the jail conditions of drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman calling it “inhumane”.

Guzman was on Wednesday sentenced to life in prison plus 30 years by a judge in the United States. A jury found him guilty in February after an 11-week trial.

Lopez Obrador said at a conference that sentences like the one for El Chapo – “a sentence for life in a hostile jail, hard, inhumane” – made a life no longer worth living.

He did, however, call Guzman out for his murderous ways and drug-fueled life of crime.
