The parish priest of the San Juan Bautista church, Harving Padilla, denounced that after two days the police of the Nicaraguan regime returned to stand outside the temple with the aim of continuing the siege and intimidation against religious leaders.
“They closed all accesses to the church,” the priest denounced before Article 66, adding that “now the device (of officers) is much larger.” Padilla explained that he had already “notified the ecclesiastical authorities” about this situation.
The priest held responsible for any action against him the uniformed men who are on the outskirts of the temple, where police patrols have remained since 11 in the morning on May 21.
Later, from May 15 to 19, the uniformed men at the service of the Daniel Ortega regime had remained stalking the church, but suddenly left the place on Thursday, hours after the arbitrary arrest of the opposition Yubrank Suazo, originally from Masaya, was recorded.
The new attack comes after Monsignor Rolando Álvarez, bishop of the Diocese of Matagalpa and apostolic administrator of the Diocese of Estelí, denounced persecution by police agents, which led him to take refuge in the Santo Cristo de Las Colinas parish in Managua.
Álvarez decided to start an indefinite fast based on water and serum until the authorities respect his rights and the privacy of his family.
Given this, the Ortega regime ordered Claro Nicaragua to suspend the Catholic Channel, which is directed by Monsignor Álvarez, a direct attack against the Catholic Church, which the Ortega regime assumes as its enemy for denouncing the human rights violations of the Nicaraguans.
