The Ortega-Murillo regime launched, for the first time, but without much noise, the new logo of its “White Cross”, an institution created on the run, to supplant the Nicaraguan Red Cross, from which they confiscated all its assets, registered or no, but they failed to steal his emblem.
The badge released today on the same social networks and the Red Cross, which will identify the White Cross of the Ortega-Murillos, consists of a white cross, centered on a circle filled with blue, but it is not the national blue.
The name of the institution is written in the same type of letters that Vice-dictator Rosario Murillo has imposed on all official stationery.
The Nicaraguan regime “confiscated” the Nicaraguan Red Cross on May 10, alleging that the most famous and protected charity in the world had failed in its principle of impartiality for having helped the injured during the social protests of 2018.
Under this pretext, the Ortega-Murillos, through their deputies in the National Assembly, approved the “Law to Repeal Legislative Decree 357 of October 29, 1958” with which they eliminated the Nicaraguan Red Cross, and ordered that all The assets of the relief institution will pass into the hands of the Ministry of Health (Minsa).
In turn, they declared the institution as an autonomous entity, attached to the Minsa. What the dictators did not count on is that the emblems and emblems of the relief institution are protected by international laws.
On July 1st, the legislators at the service of Ortega and Murillo arrogated the power to authorize the State of Nicaragua to use the insignia and emblem of the Red Cross, but less than 24 hours later they backed down and preferred to create the White Cross, the one that this Tuesday they are premiering emblem. They couldn’t steal the one from the Red Cross.
The International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent, on its official website, clarifies that its emblems “have worldwide recognition in national and international law in accordance with the Geneva Conventions of 1949 and its Additional Protocols.
