Noriega Wins A Stay of Extradition to France
A US judge has temporarily blocked the extradition to France of ex-Panamanian leader Manuel Noriega to allow his defence to present a new appeal.
The judge told the lawyers to present on Thursday evidence to support their claim that France would not abide by a key part of the Geneva Conventions.
I think the dispute here is over whether France will treat Noriega as a POW. I can’t imagine that France will do so, but I’m not sure why that should matter.
