The Renovating Democratic Union (Unimos formerly MRS) denounced that the Nicaraguan regime continues with its policy of isolation and incommunicado detention against political prisoners held at the Evaristo Vásquez Police Complex, better known as the “new Chipote.”
“In recent weeks we have seen how the Ortega Murillo dictatorship continues to use policies of isolation and incommunicado detention of all the people who are in El Chipote, violating all human rights,” said Luis Blandón, spokesman for Unamos, in a statement. video posted on Twitter.
The political group stated that it is concerned about the health of prisoners of conscience who suffer from chronic illnesses, such as activist Violeta Granera, Sandinista dissident Víctor Hugo Tinoco, and former deputy José Pallais. “We demand that they be checked by a doctor who guarantees that they are in good health,” he insisted.
He stressed that “we are going to continue raising our voices until we achieve the absolute and unconditional freedom of all the people who are unjustly held hostage by the Ortega Murillo dictatorship. We are going to continue fighting, in this fight full of resistance, but also of commitment until we achieve a country with democracy, justice and freedom.
This Friday, May 13, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights IACHR demanded the administration of Daniel Ortega “guarantee communication” between political prisoners and their families. He pointed out that the children of the hostages of the dictatorship need the contact of their parents to satisfy “their emotional needs, for well-being, security, and for the development of their identity.”
At the end of April, according to the most recent report of the Mechanism for the Recognition of Political Prisoners, the dictatorship of Daniel Ortega kept 182 opponents confined in the different prisons of Nicaragua.
