    Noriega Hopes To Head Back To Panama After Release

    (CBS4) MIAMI Just a day after the announcement of his September release from prison, former dictator Manuel Antonio Noriega said he hoped to immediately board a plane for Panama when he is released on Sept. 9, and he plans to fight his conviction back home in the slayings of two political opponents, his attorney said.

    Noriega's eight-year rule over Panama ended after the United States invaded Panama on Dec. 20, 1989, to force him from power. He is being held in the Federal Correctional Institution in Miami on drug trafficking and money laundering charges.

    Noriega was sentenced to a 30-year term for protecting Colombian cocaine shipments through Panama in the 1980s, but received deductions in his punishment for good behavior. Noriega's release in 2007 was first scheduled more than three years ago.

    The exact date, Sept. 9, was posted on the U.S. Bureau of Prisons Web site more than a year ago.

    "I'd say that is a firm date," Noriega's attorney Frank Rubino said Tuesday.

    Noriega, 70, had parole hearings in 2002 and 2004 to try to cut short his 30-year sentence. He was not recommended for parole either time.

    Rubino said his client plans to waive any deportation hearings and try to board a plane back to Panama the day he is released from prison.

    "He wants to go back to Panama and he wants to enjoy his grandchildren in quiet retirement," Rubino said.

    Many in Panama said they doubted Noriega would return.

    "I'm sure he will choose another country," said retired Gen. Ruben Dario Paredes, who headed Panama's military from 1981 to 1983. "In Panama, unlike in the U.S., he will find much worse conditions."

    Rogelio Cruz, who was Panama's attorney general from 1989 to 1994, also said he wasn't convinced of Noriega's plans.

    "This return is up in the air. We'll have to see it to believe it," Cruz said.

    But CBS4's Ileana Varela spoke to some experts, who shed some light as to why Noriega would still want to go back to Panama.

    Noriega has received two 20-year sentences in Panama for the 1985 decapitation of dissident leader Hugo Spadafora and the 1989 slaying of Maj. Moises Giroldi, who tried to overthrow him. Rubino said Noriega will fight the murder charges.

    "When he goes back to Panama, that case will be able to be reopened. Then he'll be able to adequately defend himself on that case," Rubino said.

    ...he may very well be guilty, but I was never happy nor satisfied with the manner in which he was arrested...and the reasons. Not like they didn't fully know of his activities before they raided a sovereign country to sieze him...he simply had outlived his usefulness to the Bush I regime at that point.

    Overall there is much good about this country...but this sort of "might makes right" arrogance is precisely the thing that has fomented so much hate for the US around the world, and this is precisely the sort of thing that the American people need to keep their leaders in check about.

    Pipe dream though.
