“Nicaragua’s Nazis”

Earlier this month, a United Nations group of experts concluded in an investigation into events in Nicaragua that Daniel Ortega, his wife, and their senior officials committed serious human rights abuses, including torture and murder against opponents. The abuses, which amount to crimes against humanity, provide evidence for any effort to try them abroad.

In a press conference, the head of the investigation, Jan-Michael Simon, called for international sanctions against the government and compared Nicaragua’s human rights record to that of the Nazis, saying that the Ortega-Murillo regime’s tactics to maintain in power since 2018, were like those carried out during the Nuremberg trials.

“The arming of the justice system against political opponents, as is done in Nicaragua, is exactly what the Nazi regime did,” the United Nations expert said in an interview.
