No forgiveness for Manuel Noriega in Panama

Wednesday, May 31, 2017

Panama’s former military dictator Manuel Antonio Noriega who precipitated  the 1989 US invasion  that claimed the lives of untold numbers of his fellow countrymen and women, died Monday night, May 29, aged 83.

La Estrella  says he died without the forgiveness of a people  still divided over his response to the invasion, some blaming him  for not facing it as  the general he  was and others for not giving up in time to avoid the most serious aggression suffered by the country.
