Newly unsealed documents about notorious Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman contain claims by witnesses that he had sex with minors he called "vitamins", a disturbing allegation coming just as a jury is about to start deliberating in his USA drug-trafficking case.

They say he allegedly asked if he could avoid extradition to the United States if he provided information to the DEA about the drug-running operations of rival cartels.

Guzman, 61, is accused of leading the Sinaloa Cartel, which became one of the most powerful drug trafficking organizations in the world.

He is being tried for 11 trafficking, firearms and money laundering charges and is likely to face life behind bars if convicted.

The jury is set to begin deliberations on Monday after a almost three-month trial on charges that as the head of the Sinaloa cartel, Guzman oversaw a drug-smuggling empire that flooded the U.S. market with at least 200 tons (181 metric tons) of cocaine and made 14 billion dollars (£10.7 billion) from it. In closing arguments, prosecutor Andrea Goldbarg said he was plotting yet another breakout when was he was sent in 2017 to the US, where he has been in solitary confinement ever since.

Cifuentes used this service himself three or four times, having sex with girls as young as 15-years-old, the government said in the documents, adding he "witnessed the defendant do the same on multiple occasions, with girls as young as 13 years old".

The start of the proceedings Monday was briefly delayed after two jurors indicated to the judge they were aware of reports about the alleged sex crimes.

In turn, Eduardo Balarezo, one of Guzman's attorneys, called these accusations "extremely salacious" and said that El Chapo denied them.

Nearly all of them had heard of Guzman before the trial began, but said they could be impartial. A federal judge in Brooklyn first gave hours-long instructions to jurors, and reminded them of the oath they took to proceed "without fear or favor".

El Chapo instructed Cifuentes to put a "powdery substance" into the girls' drinks before sex, said Cifuentes.
