PARIS (AP) - A judge has ordered former Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega to be jailed in France pending a new trial on money laundering charges.
Noriega has spent the last 20 years in prison near Miami and was extradited Tuesday to France from the United States. He could face another 10 years in prison in France.
French authorities want to try Noriega on charges that he laundered $7 million in drug profits through French banks and purchased luxury apartments with his wife in Paris.
