Joaquin `El Chapo` Guzman.

Guzman is the world’s most notorious drug lord, running the Sinaloa Cartel network, specializing in money laundering and smuggling billions of dollars worth of cocaine, marijuana, and meth into the US.

Guzman was first arrested in 1993 in Guatemala.

Bribery and bribery

Although detained, Guzman still secretly connects and directs the activities of the Sinaloa Cartel criminal group.

On January 19, 2001, with a similar trick, Guzman bribed prison guard Francisco `El Chito` Camberos Rivera to open the cell door for him.

Investigation authorities said Guzman planned his escape extremely meticulously.

The police force in Jalisco was also accused of receiving money from Guzman to ensure that he had 24 hours to escape, and to notify the `boss of drug lords` in advance of all the government’s moves.

For the next 13 years, he made it difficult for the police to hunt him down thanks to building a force of loyal subordinates, bribing informers, bribing officials and especially sophisticated tunnels under the villas.

Guzman’s 7 houses in Culiacan city, Mexico, are all linked together by tricky tunnels.

Thanks to secret passageways hidden underneath the bathtub, he escaped when Mexican police raided him last February.

After being arrested again last year, it seemed that Guzman would have to spend the rest of his life behind prison bars, but the drug lord shocked public opinion because at the end of July 11, he was arrested for the second time.

This tunnel is 10 m deep underground, 1.7 m high and 70 cm wide. It also has a lighting system, ventilation fans and especially a motorbike inside.

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto said the government is investigating whether prison staff were involved in this incident.

Mexico is mobilizing all its forces to arrest Guzman.

According to Michael S. Vigil, a retired official from the US Drug Enforcement Administration, if Guzman is not arrested immediately, he will likely return to run the Sinaloa Cartel within 48 hours.
