For two and half years, Mexican drug kingpin Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán has lived in solitary confinement, with nearly no ability to communicate with the outside world.

Now, with Guzman allegedly showing symptoms of “mental fatigue” and “sleep deprivation,” and “daily headaches and ear pain,” his defense team had several requests for U.S. District Judge Brian Cogan earlier this month: two hours of outdoor exercise every week, traditional commissary access, permission to buy six bottles of water a week and earplugs.

Federal prosecutors were not convinced.

According to new court filings obtained by The Washington Post, the government opposed all of the above and alleged the request was part of a ploy to escape from prison or silence cooperating witnesses.

“The size of the defendant’s cell, the parameters of his window, the presence of phantom music and the television programming available to the defendant during his daily hour of exercise,” the government wrote, were not “constitutional concerns.”

Jeffrey Lichtman, one of the lawyers on Guzman’s defense team, called the prosecution’s response, due Thursday, “literally hysterical.”

The high-profile prisoner has had no prison infractions since his arrest, he said, "yet now, by simply asking for some bottled water and some fresh air he is accused of plotting a daring prison escape despite zero supporting evidence.”

In February, federal prosecutors secured a conviction against the Sinaloa Cartel boss for running the drug trafficking enterprise. During the three-month trial, witnesses — including his former bodyguard — testified about horrific murders both ordered and carried out by Guzmán. On one occasion, he allegedly shot a rival cartel member and buried the victim alive.

Until then, the government requested Guzmán be held in restrictive detention.

“I expect the Bureau of Prisons would be concerned about El Chapo’s communication access; his phone calls, email access and letters are likely to be more closely monitored than the average person there for federal drug possession,” Deborah Golden, staff attorney at the Human Rights Defense Center, told The Washington Post in February. Indeed, Guzmán’s conviction led to widespread speculation he would be housed at ADX, the administrative super-maximum prison in Florence, Colo.

Guzmán’s requests are being scrutinized because he has broken out of prisons in the past. He escaped from two maximum-security Mexican prisons — in 2001 with the assistance of prison guards and in 2015 through a tunnel underneath the shower in his jail cell.

Adding to the government’s concern is the unsuccessful, attempted jail break in 1981, where an inmate arranged a helicopter escape from the recreation area of Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York, the same Lower Manhattan prison housing Guzmán.

The defense has a week to reply.

Guzmán is not permitted to have unmonitored phone calls or receive mail, Lichtman said, and his attorneys are the only people he can communicate with.

“Because an inmate once attempted to escape the MCC 30 years ago via helicopter, Joaquin Guzmán is planning the same?” he quipped on Saturday. “Which one of his lawyers passed the message to his co-conspirators to plan this escape?”

A lawyer for Mexico's most notorious drug kingpin, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, dismissed prosecutors’ arguments that he might try to escape from the Manhattan prison where he awaits sentencing saying he should have access to drinking water, sunlight and fresh air because they “are basic human rights.” “Mr. Guzman has not had any access to natural sunlight or fresh air for more than 2 years now since he has been extradited to the United States,” Guzman’s attorney Mariel Colon Miro told Fox News on Monday. “It’s concerning because our country prides itself of being respectful of human rights yet the U.S. government is not doing it for Mr.
