According to BBC, a source close to the family also confirmed the death of the former Panama strongman to Associated Press (AP).

Varela in his tweet, said “The death of Manuel A. Noriega closes a chapter in our history; his daughters and their families deserve to bury him in peace.”

Noriega was removed from power by the United States troops when they invaded Panama.
