December 08, 1987

A former military officer whose accusations against Panama strongman Gen. Manuel A. Noriega triggered riots and a political crisis last summer appeared in court in Panama City and pleaded guilty to a charge of inciting violence against the government, Judge Albino Alain said. State-run television aired silent film clips from the unannounced appearance in which Col. Roberto Diaz Herrera appeared for the first time in court since he and 40 others were arrested four months ago.
