Relatives, Close Friends Bid Farewell to Noriega in Intimate Burial Ceremony

PANAMA CITY – Relatives and close friends of former Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega, who died on Monday, bade farewell to him at a funeral service held at a crematorium in Panama City, one of those who attended reported on Tuesday.

“What happened today was the funeral, which is the only thing that there’s going to be,” said Ruben Murgas, one of those present at the ceremony, adding that on Tuesday the remains of the ex-general were to be cremated and “his wife, Felicidad, will have the ashes.”

Noriega, the last dictator in the military regime that governed the Central American country from 1969-1989, died at age 83 on Monday after being treated in the intensive care unit at a capital hospital for more than two months after undergoing two surgeries for a benign brain tumor.
