Dictatorship outlaws 25 NGOs and hits culture, children and human rights.

Regime prepares the cancellation of another 96 NGOs in Nicaragua

Daniel Ortega’s regime maintains its attack against civil society organizations, requesting the National Assembly —dominated by the Sandinista Front— to cancel another 96 NGOswith which the number of NGOs canceled since 2018 will rise by 452, of which 378 have been liquidated so far in 2022.

The initiative for the Decree for the Cancellation of Legal Entities was presented by Sandinista deputy Filiberto Rodríguez, who accuses the organizations of failing to comply with the General Law on Non-Profit Legal Entities and the Law against Money Laundering.

Among the organizations that will be canceled this Thursday, June 2, are social development, environmental and cultural promotion NGOs, which will join the extensive list of organizations canceled for alleged non-compliance with the presentation to the Ministry of the Interior (Migob) of their financial statements, “according to the fiscal periods with a detailed breakdown of income, expenses, trial balance and details of donations, (origin, provenance and final beneficiary)” and for having their boards of directors with expired periods.

Given the imminent cancellation of legal status, the Nicaraguan Development Institute (INDE) —which is one of those affected— reported through a statement that since 2014 it ceased to be an association supervised by the Migob and was registered in the Registry of Chambers, Federations and Business Confederations of the Ministry of Development, Industry and Commerce (Mific), so the cancellation of its legal personality “does not harm its current legal status and, therefore, it continues to operate normally.”

Directors of canceled organizations have indicated that, on repeated occasions, the Migob refused to receive the requested documents. So this crusade of the regime against the NGOs is not explained.
