Noriega's Lawyers To Challenge French Extradition

(CBS4) MIAMI Lawyers for former Panamanian dictator Manual Noriega will challenge a new French extradition request in a Miami courtroom Monday on the grounds that it violates his rights as a prisoner of war.

Noriega is currently behind bars in southwest Miami-Dade County. In 1992, he was convicted of protecting Colombian cocaine shipments through Panama into the U.S. during the 1980s. Federal prosecutors want to have Noriega extradited to France to face trial after the U.S. drug trafficking sentence he is serving ends in September.

Noriega is charged in France with using money from illegal drug trafficking to make financial transactions.

Noriega had previously been declared by a judge to be a prisoner of war, and therefore governed by the Geneva Convention. His attorneys say that means he must be returned to his country immediately after serving his sentence.
