Although the return to Panama’s of the former general Manuel Antonio Noriega is in the hands of the US State Department, Panama’s Foreign Minister and Vice President, Juan Carlos Varela, hinted that his extradition is a fact. According to Varela, U.S. authorities have said they have no objection with Noriega serving his sentences in Panama. Therefore, he explained that it will fall to the Attorney General to send their special agents to France to request the delivery of Noriega. Both the defense lawyers of the former dictator and Panama’s president Ricardo Martinelli have said that, upon meeting the procedures of repatriation or in case of a reduced sentence, Noriega could return to Panama by next June or July.
