Five years after being extradited to the US, the Mexican drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán is pointing fingers at what he says are the real powers behind the drug trade on both sides of the border.
Through his attorney, Mariel Colón, one of the few people allowed to have regular contact with him, Guzmán said that for the drug war to stop, authorities would have to go after “politicians on both sides of the border.”
“For years, authorities have put away these alleged leaders, but it is not serving any purpose. But if you go after politicians that are allowing this to happen, it’s a different thing,” Colón told Insider. “That’s what he has expressed before. That’s what he thinks.”
