Police detain priest Manuel Salvador García after being involved in an altercation in Nandaime

The Ortega Police arrested Father Manuel Salvador García, pastor of the Jesús de Nazareno Church, in Nandaime, in Granada, known as El Calvario, this Wednesday morning, after he was involved in an altercation with residents of that municipality in recent days. .

The news was confirmed to the newspaper La Prensa by a source close to the religious’s family, who explained that after this incident the priest preferred to go to his family’s home, in Carazo, where he was finally arrested by the uniformed men.

“(The) police and riot agents surrounded the house and took him away with great violence, beating him as if he were the last criminal. The family does not know where he is so far,” the source told the media outlet.

Through social networks, the media related to the dictatorship of Daniel Ortega shared two videos where Father García appears armed with a machete and responding to the insults of the residents that the residents launched at him from outside. The source told La Prensa that the priest’s reaction was due to the fact that the people who recorded him earlier had threatened him.

According to the Ortega media — who began a smear and defamation campaign against the priest — the incident occurred after the father allegedly assaulted a woman who was inside the temple. It was learned that the 57-year-old religious suffers from diabetes and takes medication for chronic neuropathy.

Unofficially, the media outlet 100% Noticias learned that the Nandaime priest was transferred to the cells of the Judicial Assistance Directorate (DAJ), known as the new “Chipote.” To date, the Diocese of Granada has not issued any statement on the arrest of the priest.
