Noriega back in court


I’m in Miami for the conclusion of the Padilla trial, but when I heard that Manuel Noriega was making an appearance in the same courthouse I headed up to the 9th floor courtroom and made this sketch. Noriega, in military uniform, is seated next to one of his attorneys, Frank Rubino, while his other attorney, John May, tries to persuade Judge Hoevler to allow the former dictator to return to Panama when he is released from prison here early next month.
