The Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), Luis Almagrostated, on his Twitter account, that the crimes committed against opponents declared stateless by the Nicaraguan regime should be heard by the International Criminal Court.
He sent his message when he reported that he held a meeting with a group of 27 political prisoners who were exiled to the United States by the dictatorship, to whom he expressed his support for their complaint for the crimes against humanity they suffered.
The group of 94 people declared stateless by the Nicaraguan dictatorship rejected the annulment of their nationality and indicated that the action against them was “for thinking differently and demanding justice, democracy and freedom.” In addition, they stressed that “nationality is an inalienable right and no one can take it away from us.”
In a press conference called “We are and will continue to be Nicaraguans”, those affected insisted that the stripping of their nationality constitute crimes against humanity, “which are added to those committed by the regime in 2018 and, as such, must be known by the International Criminal Court, as stated by the Colombian government in its statement.”
Vilma Esperanza Álvarez Lagos, sister of Monsignor Rolando Alvarezdemands that the Nicaraguan authorities allow him to visit the religious leader, whom he has not seen since last February 9, when Daniel Ortega’s justice transferred the Bishop of Matagalpa to the “La Modelo” prison in Tipitapa, as punishment for refusing to to board a plane to be banished.
According to the digital media Office 505the relative of the hostage of conscience filed a petition in the Courts of Managua on Thursday, March 2, where he asks Judge Nadia Tardencilla to allow him to visit his brother and give him food, wherever he is, because he does not know exactly where the bishop is.
The regime of Daniel Ortega and Rosario Murillo, in addition to having committed “crimes against humanity” since the repression of April 2018, have carried out methods comparable to those used by the German dictator Adolf Hitler.
The specialist in comparative criminal law, criminal policy and international law said at a press conference that “the arming of the justice system against political opponents, as is done in Nicaragua, is exactly what the Nazi regime did.”
for the lawyer Juan Diego Barberenaa member of the Political Council of the Blue and White National Unity, the report of the Group of Experts “sets an extremely important precedent in the incidence of the international community in these five years of crisis.”
