Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman, 62, was found guilty in February of trafficking tons of cocaine, heroin, marijuana and synthetic fentanyl into the US for nearly three decades as the leader of the Sinaloa Cartel.

He was sentenced to life in prison plus 30 years, and he was ordered to pay $12.6 billion, the amount he is believed to have earned through his illegal business.

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador on Thursday blasted Guzman’s life sentence as “inhumane” — echoing comments made by the convicted druglord himself.
