Could Chapo Guzman walk free as jury decides his fate at end of 'telenovela trial'

Later on in the trial the actor who played Guzman in the current Netflix series Narcos: Mexico showed up in court, and Guzman – who famously wanted a film of his life, and whose meeting to discuss it with Sean Penn is thought to have led to his capture – waved in delight at Alejandro Edda.

“I didn’t smile back. I was just paying respect to him,” said Edda. “I was shocked in a way. He has a very intense look. His eyes say a lot. He’s a bit intimidating.”

Some of the 56 witnesses the prosecution called also avoided eye contact.

Christian Rodriguez, a terrified-looking IT expert, testified how he had given the FBI access to all Guzman’s communications. He overheard a discussion about how “Chapo’s IT guy is working for the Americans,” and promptly fled for his life – he’s been in hiding, and electroshock therapy, ever since.
