Mexico Leader: Chapo Verdict Shows Money Can't Buy Happiness

Mexico Leader: Chapo Verdict Shows Money Can't Buy Happiness

Wednesday, 13 February 2019 11:38 AM

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador sees the conviction of drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman as a moral lesson.

Lopez Obrador said Wednesday: "Let this serve as a lesson to show that money doesn't buy true happiness."

Guzman was convicted in New York Tuesday of drug trafficking and may be sentenced to life.

Lopez Obrador mused that "happiness is having a clear conscience and being at peace with one's self and others."

The president has launched a campaign aimed at convincing people not to break the law, under the slogan, "We're all going to behave."

It is not clear if the raids that resulted in Guzman's capture would occur under Lopez Obrador, who recently said "the strategy is no longer to carry out raids to capture capos."
