Cenidh: “January 10 is tragic in the history of Nicaragua”

The Nicaraguan Center for Human Rights (Cenidh) recalled the 45th anniversary of the murder of Pedro Joaquín Chamorro, stating that this January 10th becomes a “tragic” date for the collective imagination of Nicaraguans, with the trial against Monsignor Rolando Álvarez and the seizure of all the mayoralties of the country.

“This date is tragic because the new dictatorships have been installed on it, such as that of the Ortega Murillo regime, and it is no coincidence that today was chosen to carry out the most infamous of accusations, the trial of the Bishop of Matagalpa, Monsignor Rolando Álvarez, the most innocent of all the innocents persecuted in Nicaragua,” says the defense organization.

This Tuesday morning, the bishop of the Diocese of Matagalpa began his process in which the Ortega judiciary accuses him of the alleged crimes of conspiracy to undermine national integrity and propagation of false news, through information technology. information, to the detriment of the State and Nicaraguan society.

The initial hearing, held in the Managua Judicial Complex and in which the bishop was presented without his religious clothing, according to the images shared by the Judiciary, was held in the middle of a day of prayer promoted by Catholic groups from Nicaragua through social networks.

Cenidh points out that today the dictatorship “closes all hope of democracy with the takeover of the 153 mayoralties stolen during the electoral farce in 2022.”

At the same time, they recall that this January 10 commemorates the assassination of the martyr of public liberties, Pedro Joaquín Chamorro Cardenal, “the most brutal expression of the Somoza dictatorship against a true defender of democracy”, an event that sparked the fight against the dictator Somoza and ended in a triumph “now betrayed”, the organization refers.

Currently, the cruelty of the Ortega regime against the Chamorro family has led it to the point of confiscating the newspaper La Prensa -in August 2021- and installing one of its “social” projects. To date, the dictatorship has not released any of the political prisoners, including two sons of the martyr.

“We call on the people of Nicaragua to continue the fight for freedom, justice and democracy, these repressive acts on the part of the dictatorships of yesterday and today should encourage us to continue fighting until impunity is overthrown,” concludes the human rights organization.
