Mexican Drug Lord ‘Chapo’ Guzman Appeals His Sentence

TEHRAN ( Iran News ) – Convicted Mexican drug lord Joaquin “Chapo” Guzman appealed against his life sentence handed down a year ago by a US court for trafficking hundreds of tons of narcotics into the country. “El Chapo,” as he is commonly known, is kept in isolation, incarcerated one of the United States’ highest security prisons, located in Colorado’s mountainous desert, AFP reported. “Chapo Guzman’s prosecution was marred by rampant excess and overreach, both governmental and judicial,” his lawyer Marc Fernich wrote in the appeal, presented late Friday to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in New York
