El Chapo, the notorious Mexican cartel kingpin, finds himself in a lonely existence behind bars at the supermax United States Penitentiary Florence in Colorado.

His plea to the court is heartfelt: he seeks authorization for a family visit, yearning to see his wife and young daughters.

The former drug lord is petitioning the court to maintain his bi-monthly 15-minute phone calls with his daughters. These calls were abruptly terminated last May, a move he attributes to the federal authorities. His suspicion is that they are retaliating against him because he is actively seeking to have his case dismissed.

Chapo writes of the prosecutor in his case, “She was surely upset because in the pro se motion, I exposed the inefficiency of the lawyers who did not fight the anomalies of the prosecutors throughout the process.

“And in response, they have decided to punish me by preventing me from speaking with my daughters,” he continues. “To this day they have not told me if they will no longer give me calls with my girls. That’s why I’m bothering you, since you authorized those two calls a month. That is why I ask for your intervention, since it is unprecedented discrimination against me.”

Chapo further explains that this is the sole means of communication with his children, as they reside in Mexico. Unfortunately, they are unable to visit him in the United States due to their lack of visas.

In a theoretical scenario, the only person who could potentially visit him in person would be his wife, Emma Coronel. He is petitioning the court to grant her permission for such visits. While he doesn’t explicitly mention conjugal visits, the implications are certainly there.

Interestingly, Chapo personally signed this letter, and it appears to be in his own words. Clearly, this communication holds significant importance for him, especially considering he chose to write it in English.

As for Emma Coronel, she too experienced time behind bars until her release last year. Since then, she has been residing in Los Angeles. Notably, shortly after her release, Emma wasted no time hitting the town and celebrating her newfound freedom.

As previously reported, El Chapo was convicted in 2019 for participating in a persistent criminal enterprise, money laundering related to drug profits, and the global distribution of cocaine, heroin, marijuana, and other illicit substances. His charges also included the illegal use of firearms.

This legal saga unfolded after the Mexican authorities apprehended the leader of the Sinaloa Cartel in 2014. His dramatic escape from prison, facilitated by a mile-long underground tunnel, captured international attention. However, fate caught up with him once more when he was recaptured in early 2016.

While El Chapo may spend the remainder of his days behind bars, he yearns for companionship along this arduous journey. He is fervently hoping that the court will extend him a lifeline in this regard.
