Mothers of more than 80 detainees who were not covered by an amnesty in Nicaragua protested on Wednesday to demand the release of their children, while continuing the official siege against the opposition.

Opposition single demands freedom of ‘all’ political prisoners
Government declares that it has complied with the release of opponents in Nicaragua
“¡Libertad !, Pueblo unite !,” They are students, they are not delinquents! “, Shouted dozens of mothers and opponents in front of the gates of La Modelo, the largest prison in Nicaragua, 20 km north of Managua .

“I ask for the release of my son Francisco,” said Leslie Rayo, mother of a protester arrested 11 months ago for participating in a student march against the government.

On Tuesday, the 90-day deadline for the release of all detainees in the protests that broke out in April last year against President Daniel Ortega , which had been agreed in a dialogue between the government and opposition to end the crisis and which was suspended in May.

A controversial amnesty approved on June 8 by the parliament’s ruling majority facilitated the release last week of 492 opponents who were imprisoned or under house arrest.

The government declared on Tuesday that it has already complied with all the releases agreed.

The Civic Alliance for Justice and Democracy (ACJD), the government’s interlocutor in the talks, presented a list of 84 imprisoned opponents that the authorities refuse to release on the grounds that they are common criminals. In a previous list, the ACJD had indicated that there were 89 imprisoned.

The protests, which began in rejection of a reform of social security and led to a clamor for the resignation of Ortega, left at least 325 dead, hundreds of detainees and 62,500 exiled by death threats or imprisonment, according to humanitarian groups.

In addition to the release of the prisoners, the ACJD demands to advance the 2021 elections with the purpose of cutting the mandate of Ortega, in power 12 years ago, and whom they accuse of corruption and seek to perpetuate themselves in power together with his wife and vice president Rosario Murillo.

“We will continue fighting to get these 84 compatriots out of jail,” said opposition leader Sebastián Chamorro , who claimed that the government maintains these prisoners to “divert attention from the country’s real problem, which is the lack of democracy. , freedoms and the existence of a state of siege “.
