El Chapo ‘drugged and raped girls as young as 13 and called them “vitamins”‘ – News Live

 Mexican drug kingpin El Chapo drugged and raped girls as young as 13 and called them “vitamins” because they “gave him life”, it is claimed  Joaquin Guzman, the Sinaloa cartel boss, allegedly paid $5,000 a time to have minors flown to his hideouts through a trafficker known as “Commadre Maria”  El Chapo hand-picked the underage girls based on photos that were sent to him by “Commadre Maria”, and he called the youngest victims “vitamins”, believing they gave him energy, according to a Colombian drug trafficker who testified against him  The sick allegations emerged in court documents that were unsealed and made public on Saturday as the drug lord’s trial nears its end    The drug trafficker, Alex Cifuentes, told prosecutors that he spent more than a year living with El Chapo, and during that time both raped child trafficking victims who were brought to Guzman  Cifuentes claimed Commadre Maria ran a “modelling agency” in Mexico City and she had links to the Sinaloa cartel and high-ranking officials within Mexico’s military  She would send photos of the girls to Guzman and he would pay $5,000 (£3,800) to have them flown to one of his ranches    Cifuentes said El Chapo ordered him to drug some of the girls by spiking their drinks with a “powdery substance”  The drug trafficker told prosecutors he raped girls as young as 15, but denied drugging them  The allegations have not been heard by the jury in El Chapo’s trial.  Federal prosecutors convinced a judge to block the allegations from being heard in court arguing they were “irrelevant” to the case and Cifuentes’ admission to participating could taint the jury’s verdict  El Chapo’s legal team has denied the allegations, saying they were not corroborated and they were “deemed too prejudicial and unreliable” to be admitted at trial  But the documents claimed that Cifuentes’ allegations were corroborated by other witnesses who cooperated with federal prosecutors  The documents also state that Cifuentes has a number of “unorthodox interests”, including the Illuminati, UFOs, witch doctors and “the idea that there was an impending apocalypse in 2012”  They read: “He has personally availed himself of the services of a witch doctor on several occasions ”  The documents were unsealed after lawyers for the New York Times and Vice News filed a motion seeking to make them public  Deliberations are due to begin on Monday after a Brooklyn courtroom heard three months of evidence  Guzman was extradited to the US in 2017 and has been on trial since November on charges of trafficking huge amounts of cocaine, heroin and other drugs into America, murder conspiracy and firearms possession  He denies the charges.  El Chapo, who was not called to give evidence in his defence, faces life in prison if convicted
