De Facto Ruler of Panama - Excellent content letter

NORIEGA, General (Manuel Antonio)  (1934-2017). Panamanian dictator. He became commander of Panama’s defense forces in 1983 and subsequently installed and deposed presidents. In 1988 he was indicted by two U.S. grand juries for drug trafficking, racketeering and money laundering for the Medellin (Columbia) cartel. As tensions mounted between the United States and Panama, he was overthrown by U.S. troops on Dec. 20, 1989 and taken to the U.S. to stand trial.  He was convicted of 8 of 11 counts in 1992. He was sentenced to 40 years in prison.  On Dec. 8, 1992, a U.S. federal judge in Miami ruled that Noriega was a prisoner of war, a decision that could in the future modify the terms and conditions of his imprisonment.  A.L.S. while imprisoned in Florida. To the 11th grade class in your High School (?) From General Noriega, Feb. 1990. He writes the following in Spanish (translated) - “Say Hello to your classmates who have the same cultural curiosity like you! Dear Robert: I write you back your letter on the February the 2nd.  I appreciate your intelligent curiosity of the students, High School, eleventh grade. R - There isn’t any reason for a Country that considered Himself powerful, Superior or a Rich Empire, Subdude to invade and assassinate a city without capacity to defend himself in a War.  For a World Leaders Country, it is dangerous to break the contracts (treaties) signed by his Antecendents (Presidents). Robert congratulations on your incentive to write me, say hello to your class.” Written on his personal imprinted folding correspondence card. In fine condition. Excellent content..............$225.00
