WORLD IN BRIEF : MIAMI : Noriega Lawyers Try New Defense Tactic

April 03, 1990|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Defense attorneys for former dictator Manuel A. Noriega opened another front in their attack on his indictment, charging that the Dec. 20 U.S. invasion that led to his arrest caused "indiscriminate" mayhem in Panama that should "shock the conscience of the court." Appealing in a federal court hearing for dismissal of drug charges, the defense played television film clips of the fighting and presented testimony by former Atty. Gen. Ramsey Clark about suffering endured by Panamanian civilians.
