The surgery slated for Thursday on former dictator Manuel Antonio Noriega to remove a benign tumor has been postponed, confirmed his lawyer Ezra Angel.

Noriega was transferred to Santo Tomás Hospital yesterday to start the preoperative preparation phase, but the transfer was suspended at the request of his doctors.

The lawyer said that the medical team decided to suspend the surgery because they decided the pre-op procedures needed to begin at least two weeks in advance.

His lawyer said that it will require him being held under house arrest, instead of in prison, for at least two weeks prior to the operation. That request must be approved by authorities.

Institute of Legal Medicine and Forensic Sciences Director Humberto Mas said that so far no request has been filed with the agency for an assessment of the situation.

However, he acknowledged that the former dictator has several health problems and that his advanced age makes his situation even more delicate.

Noreiga has been held in El Renacer Prison since Dec. 11, 2011 where he is serving prison terms for the murders of Hugo Spadafora and Captain Moisés Giroldi.
