INTERNATIONAL – The US government has asked Friday (July 5th) to seize some $ 12.6 billion worth of goods from the Mexican drug dealer Joaquin Guzman "El Chapo", according to him an estimate of the revenues collected by his cartel when he directed.
In a document filed in Brooklyn, NY, on Friday, federal prosecutor Richard Donoghue says he is "entitled to seize any property that is or is derived from the drug-related offenses of the accused."
He calculates, on the basis of the various drug sales prices quoted by various witnesses, that El Chapo's co-ordinated 25-year cartel received, at least, over this period, some $ 11.8 billion in revenue. for his sales of cocaine, $ 846 million for marijuana sales and $ 11 million for heroin sales.
This money was laundered and used to pay associates and employees of the cartel, suppliers, communications equipment, and buy aircraft, submarines cited during the trial as having been used by the cartel, said the prosecutor.
But the government "is entitled to claim compensation equal to the value of the goods involved in the crime of money laundering," he adds.
The prosecutor does not seem to be worried at this stage whether El Chapo can repay such amounts.
"The government does not need to prove that the defendant can pay," he wrote, he just has to prove "that the amount can be seized."
During the trial, a former partner of El Chapo had said that he lived in luxury in the 90s.
He owned "four planes, houses on all beaches, ranches in all the states of Mexico" and a residence in the resort town of Acapulco, said former El Chapo manager Miguel Angel Martinez.
But we do not know what he has yet since his extradition to the United States in January 2017, and what he has transferred to his family or friends.
This request from the US government comes in the run-up to the July 17 hearing, after which El Chapo, 62, should be fixed on his sentence.
He should, unless we are surprised, be sentenced to life imprisonment.
