The Daniel Ortega regime authorized a new visit to the political prisoners who are being held in the Judicial Assistance Directorate (DAJ), known as “El Nuevo Chipote” in Managua.
Article 66 learned that the police authorities informed relatives of the conscientious hostages that the visits will begin tomorrow, Thursday, April 28. This would be the seventh time that most of the opponents will be able to be seen by their relatives in more than ten months of confinement.
The notification comes after more than 40 days of the last visit that kidnapped opponents were allowed between May and November 2021. The previous round was between March 17 and 19.
For its part, the Renovating Democratic Union (Unamos) described as torture that the police authorities do not allow political prisoners to be visited for more than a month to find out what conditions they are in.
“It is already 40 days since the political prisoners detained in El Chipote last saw their relatives, who have no news of them. It is torture for the detainees and their families!” the political organization said on its Twitter account.
A source on condition of anonymity said that they already have a date to see their relative held captive in “El Nuevo Chipote.” «In the name of the Lord we can see them; We all look forward to seeing the state of health they are in », she said.
Most of the current political prisoners have already been convicted by the Nicaraguan justice for the alleged crime of “undermining national integrity” and “cybercrimes.”
Of the total number of opponents held in the Directorate of Judicial Assistance, only the representatives of the Superior Council of Private Enterprise (Cosep), Michael Healey Y Alvaro Vargas they have not been brought to trial. The process of both will begin on Thursday, April 28.
