Noriega leaves hospital in Panama, returns to jail
Panama City: Medical authorities in Panama say former dictator Manuel Noriega has left a hospital four days after fainting in the prison where he is serving time for murder, embezzlement and corruption.
Health Minister Franklin Vergara says the ex-strongman was returned to the custody of Public Security Ministry officials on Thursday.
The 77-year-old Noriega was taken to a hospital on Sunday after suffering what appeared to be ill effects of hypertension.
Noriega was toppled by a 1989 US invasion and served 17 years in a US prison for drug trafficking. He was later convicted in France of money laundering.
France sent him home on December 11 to serve a combined 60-year Panamanian prison sentence on murder, embezzlement and corruption charges.
