The attorney for imprisoned former Panamanian dictator, General Manuel Noriega, has publicly stated that Noriega has a brain tumor. Said to be benign recently by a number of physicians who were seeking less strict conditions for Noriega's imprisonment, the general also suffers from a heart condition, and he recently was hospitalised due to influenza.

Noriega is currently serving a sentence for murder and corruption; some sources state that his Panamanian sentence is 20 years, whilst others claim he is serving a sixty-year sentence.
