The attorney for Sinaloa drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman says his client is complaining that between regular checkups and a rollicking guard dog, he is unable to get a good night sleep.

Since his recapture on January 8th, prison officials have placed the kingpin under 24-hour tight security after he pulled off his second prison escape from the Altiplano maximum security prison back in July.

Guard dogs specially trained to detect his scent now keep a close eye on Guzman’s jail cell, and guards regularly check on him every hour to prevent another escape.

“El Chapo” had a third party deliver a text to his attorney Jose Gonzalez, where he voiced his displeasure about the prison conditions.

“I haven’t been able to sleep at all. They wake me up to take the register every hour during the day and every two hours at night, and there is a dog next to me who keeps barking, which is stopping me sleeping,” El Chapo wrote.

Guzman also complained about the lack of facilities at the prison, the lack of phones in the rooms and the fact that he hasn’t seen his family since his apprehension.

Gonzalez called on prison officials to improve conditions at the Altiplano detention center.

The most powerful drug trafficker in the world is currently fighting his extradition to the United States where he is wanted for multiple drug trafficking indictments in several U.S. cities.

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto unveiled plans last week to accelerate the process to send Guzman to the U.S.

“The Attorney General is working on ‘accelerating’ the extradition of this criminal to the U.S. as soon as possible,” Pena Nieto said to reporters at the World Economic Forum last week in Switzerland.
