Un chien goûte la nourriture de Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman pour éviter que le baron de la drogue ne soit empoisonné en prison, où il est arrivé "déprimé" et s'est vu remettre un exemplaire de "Don Quichotte", ont annoncé mercredi les autorités mexicaines.

Le puissant narcotrafiquant, arrêté le 8 janvier à Los Mochis, dans l'Etat de Sinaloa (nord-ouest), est de retour dans la prison de haute sécurité d'Altiplano, à environ 90 km de Mexico, d'où il s'était évadé de façon spectaculaire en juillet via un tunnel creusé sous la douche de sa cellule.

Le "K9" (chien entraîné) "goûte la nourriture qui va lui être donnée (à Guzman, ndlr) pour s'assurer qu'il ne soit pas empoisonné", a déclaré à l'antenne de "Radio Formula" Eduardo Guerrero, le responsable de l'administration pénitentiaire.

"Il était déprimé quand il est arrivé, fatigué, c'est ce qu'il a fait savoir lors de son premier entretien. Il était fatigué de fuir", a-t-il ajouté. 

Un exemplaire de "Don Quichotte", le livre de Miguel de Cervantes, a été remis au chef du cartel de Sinaloa, a indiqué le haut fonctionnaire.

"Nous pensons que c'est un grand livre (...) nous devons commencer à lui donner ce type de lectures", a déclaré Eduardo Guerrero.

Mardi, les avocats d'"El Chapo" ont dénoncé les conditions de détention du baron de la drogue.

Les autorités mexicaines ont pris des mesures exceptionnelles pour éviter que le baron de la drogue ne s'évade une seconde fois de la prison, avant une possible extradition vers les Etats-Unis.
