Prosecutors say that El Chapo's requests for earplugs and out of time are part of an elaborate trick to escape from a New York prison before being convicted and sent to the world's safest prison
- FBI says that Joaquin & # 39; El Chapo & # 39; Guzman is planning an escape from custody
- He is being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan
- Medicine headpin is waiting for a conviction and is likely to be transferred to ADX Florence supermax
- Prosecutors say that his complaints about circumstances are just a trick to escape
Federal prosecutors have said that the complaints from Joaquin & # 39; El Chapo & # 39; Guzman about his detention conditions are likely to be part of an extensive plot to escape.
The state argued in a court of law that Guzman's perpetual complaints – about noise, tight conditions and his lack of leisure time outdoors – are all part of a plan to go into hiding at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, the New York Post reported.
The Mexican drug queen is being held at the Manhattan fort for his conviction on June 25. After that, he is likely to become a permanent resident at ADX Florence supermax in a remote part of Colorado, which is considered the world's safest detention facility.
& # 39; In this case, any outdoor exercise time would be particularly problematic for this defendant, & # 39; wrote the prosecutor in motion to federal judge Brian Cogan from Brooklyn.

Guzman escaped from prison in Mexico twice, the prosecutors pointed out.
The first escape, in 2011, involved paying nearly all prison staff and sneaking into a laundry cart.
The second, in 2015, saw Guzman escape from his cell on a motorcycle through a 1.6 km long tunnel that accomplices had dug directly under his shower cubicle.
& # 39; Certainly, an escape through the roof using a helicopter or other related means would be elementary in comparison, wrote prosecutors.
Prosecutors pointed out that in 1981 a helicopter rammed the steel cage around the outside area on the roof in an unsuccessful attempt to free an anesthetic dealer.
In 2015, Guzman escaped from a tunnel that was an accessory to the shower in his Mexican prison cell, the only part of the cell that was not covered by security cameras & # 39; s

Guzman also complained that he had to make earplugs out of toilet paper because of a noisy air conditioner, but public prosecutors say the Bureau of Prisons limits earplugs for fear that prisoners use them in a trick to pretend they don't hear orders from guards.
The kingpin has also complained that the tap water at MCC & # 39; moldy & # 39; and requires more bottled water, although prosecutors have not indicated how that request can be part of an escape plan.
However, the state says that Guzman is in motion and has received six weekly bottles of water to which he is entitled.
Guzman's lawyer denied the escape plots by telling the Post that the claim & # 39; hysterical & # 39; is.
