Various opposition organizations have joined the demand for the political prisoner and presidential candidate, Miguel Mora, to see his son of the same name, who is a young man with motor disabilities. Given the refusal of the dictatorship, Mora began a hunger strike 37 days ago, according to his wife Verónica Chávez.
Miguel Mora has been detained since June 20, 2021. He has been in captivity for 405 days in the Judicial Assistance Directorate (DAJ), known as “El Nuevo Chipote” where he is subjected to cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment.
“Miguel Mora and all political prisoners have the right to see and communicate with their sons and daughters. His life is in danger. We demand compliance with the Mandela Rules for persons deprived of liberty. #LibertadYa », he wrote on his Unab Twitter account.
“This cruel and inhuman regime that imprisons innocents and allows torture against opposition leaders. We demand that Miguel Mora be able to see and hug his son,” the Civic Alliance posted on Twitter.
The forced separation of Miguel Mora and his son, imposed by Ortega and Murillo, according to a specialist, could cause permanent damage that could affect the detained presidential candidate and his family.
“We join the family of the journalist and political prisoner Miguel Mora in his complaint,” wrote the Nicaragua Never Again Collective on its social networks.
«Miguelito has the right to see his father! Let father and son meet and hug each other, it is his right,” María Asunción Moreno, a member of the Civic Alliance, posted on Twitter.
A specialist in clinical psychology explained on condition of anonymity to Article 66 that there are emotional situations that “no matter how many therapies the person receives or a lot of emotional support from the family, if the stressor element is not removed, that is, if the person is subjected to the same stressor, this can cause permanent psychic damage in Mental health”.
Regarding the absence of Miguel Mora with his family and the regime’s refusal to allow him to see his son, the psychologist emphasized that the issue of separation, whether due to migrating, detention, or permanent loss, “obviously affects the whole family dynamic.
After learning about the situation that Mora is going through, his wife told this media outlet that she fears the repercussions on her health that she may have for refraining from eating solid foods, depending only on water and whey.
Ortega’s justice accused the journalist of allegedly conspiring “to undermine national integrity” and the sanctioned Second Judge of the Managua Criminal District, Nadia Camila Tardencilla, sentenced him to 13 years in prison.
