Of the 146 recorded arrests, they released more than 90 who had been captured in mass raids, according to the report.

Hours or days after being arrested and accused of crimes considered “treason,” most were sent home with a precautionary measure, in which they must sign periodically at the police or judicial offices of their municipality.

Of the 519 incidents related to human rights violations, 146 were arrests, 114 harassment, 102 prosecution incidents, 47 threats, 43 territorial social control, 33 migratory repression, 25 cancellations of legal entities/confiscations, and 9 assaults, specified the Blue and White Monitoring.

The months of April and May rebounded with 218 and 160 complaints of human rights violations, respectively, stressed that observatory.

“Holy Week, the persecution of the Catholic Church and the anniversary of the demonstrations in April 2018, were the events that have most marked the repression in the last three months,” explained Blue and White Monitoring.

Managua, Chinandega, Masaya and the South Caribbean Autonomous Region were the most affected departments (provinces) in the first six months of the year, noted the observatory.
