Luis Almagro demands Ortega "dismantle the system of repression and torture" against political prisoners

Unab suggests to the OAS to convene a meeting of foreign ministers and apply the Democratic Charter to Nicaragua

The Blue and White National Unity (Unab) urged the Organization of American States (OAS) to convene a meeting of consultations of ministers of foreign affairs and consider the application of the Inter-American Democratic Charter of the organization to Nicaragua.

This request from the Nicaraguan opposition body comes after the actions of the Nicaraguan regime against the diplomatic delegation of the continental forum. On Sunday, April 24, he announced that he was expelling the OAS mission from the country. That same day he ordered to “protect” the agency’s headquarters building, two days later he formalized the expropriation of the property through the Attorney General’s Office (PGR).

“We urge that honorable body to respond with exemplary energy and forcefulness, aware that what has happened in Managua in recent days constitutes an intolerable affront and a threat to each and every one of the member states, and that it endangers the principle of inviolability of the diplomatic missions included in the Vienna Convention, ”says a statement from the opposition bloc.

“The situation in Nicaragua has already exceeded the thresholds of urgency and seriousness that justifies the convening of a consultation meeting of ministers of foreign affairs under article 61 of the OAS Charter, without prejudice to the consideration of also applying articles 20 or 21 of the Inter-American Democratic Charter,” he adds.

Unab assures that the dictator Ortega “intends to avoid his inescapable obligations to strictly comply with international agreements, resolutions and instruments of the Inter-American System in matters of human rights and respect for the democratic principles and values ​​enshrined in them.”

With these decisions of the dictatorship, according to the opposition group, Daniel Ortega and Rosario Murillo “are once again turning” Nicaragua into a “pariah country whose isolation deepens with each passing minute.”

Not even Somoza expropriated the OAS

The Secretary General of the OAS, Luis Almagro, indicated that the confiscation of the organization’s headquarters in Managua “is a dangerous precedent” and asked “to act now if we do not want others to be harmed tomorrow.”

He stated that the de facto confiscation of the facilities, documents and assets of the headquarters of the continental organization is a “morally reprehensible action, legally regrettable and even more regrettable, the attitudes of the regime against its people.”

Almagro pointed out that the Managua regime “decided to expropriate the offices of the OAS building that occupied part of it, illegally entering an office protected by immunities and illegitimately expropriating a property as a purported sanction to the OAS when that building is of our property. The OAS only leases part of it.”

The head of the OAS affirmed that not even the worst dictators in the Americas, including the Somozas, “never took measures like this.” In addition, what happens with its offices in Managua sets a precedent that “if tolerated can lead to the worst abuses of any international organization or diplomatic headquarters.”
