El Chapo — the notorious drug lord who reigned over the world’s most dangerous cartel — is PISSED he can’t properly pray in prison.
Chapo’s lawyers fired off a letter to the judge outlining “draconian conditions” in Manhattan’s Metropolitan Correctional Center … including the fact the kingpin hasn’t seen a Spanish-speaking priest.
In the letter, obtained by TMZ, Chapo’s legal team is pretty clear … “any interaction he has with ‘religious personnel’ has either been through pantomime or with the assistance of a prison guard who speaks Spanish.”
His lawyers say this is a clear violation of his constitutional rights. They’re also adamant the U.S. government is spying on Chapo every time he meets with his legal team — and they’ve requested Amnesty International USA to inspect Chapo’s cell.
As we’ve reported … Chapo’s lawyers say he’s being held under the worst, most restrictive conditions of any prisoner currently detained by the U.S. government.
