In February, Guzman, 62, who was also a former leader of Sinaloa’s drug cartel in Mexico, was found guilty by a United States federal court on charges of smuggling hundreds of tons of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and marijuana to the country.

Guzman, who was wearing a gray suit, T-shirt and a purple tie, looked sad when he heard the sentence being read by a court official.

“There is no justice here,” Guzman said in Spanish, after being asked to present the last words before being taken to a federal prison, believed to be in Florence, Colorado.

Meanwhile, El Chapo was seen waving to his wife, Emma Coronel when entering the court and before leaving the courtroom.

Guzman was prevented from contacting his wife during the two-year pre-trial detention period.

Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman was sentenced to, for various allegations, including money laundering and gun-related offenses, which carries a life sentence of imprisonment, upon conviction.

US Federal Court judge Brian Cogan, who sentenced the 30-year prison sentence, also ordered the drug lord to pay US $ 12.6 billion in the form of looting.

The amount is based on the estimated revenue from the sale of the drug cartel in the United States.

However, until now, US authorities have failed to find even one cent of the proceeds.
