This is the opinion of Patria Portugal, daughter of the late political leader Heliodoro Portugal, who was one of the victims of the military regime. Patria Portugal, who is now the defensor del pueblo, said that Noriega clearly did not act alone in carrying out his crimes.
Portugal said that, upon his release from a French prison, Noriega should be brought to Panama so he can be questioned about who his accomplices were and the location of the bodies of his victims.
Portugal explained that this would ease the pain of the relatives of the victims.
“I believe that it is a matter of morality and justice,” she said.
Panama has requested that France extradite Noriega to Panama to stand trial for his crimes.
