Mexican maid Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman told a judge on Monday that he would not take the witness standing in his own defense on his US drug trafficking test and concludes speculation that he might break and build on a notorious reputation already cemented by the scattered government's case against him.

"Your honor, I and my lawyers have spoken about this, and I will not testify," said Guzman through a Spanish interpreter in a rare case of him who stood up and speaks in court.

The decision together with the defense plan to call only two short witnesses could bring the trial to a faster than expected conclusion. Closing arguments were initiated Wednesday with considerations that began as soon as Friday afternoon.

Guzman's lawyers say he is framed by a chamber of collaborators who were far more guilty of the Sinaloa cartel's wildly lucrative cocaine smuggling business.
