International Relations

The Nicaraguan justice imposed on Monday sentences to more than 200 years of prison to the opposition leaders Medardo Mairena and Pedro Mena for participating last year in the violent protests against Daniel Ortega’s government, his lawyer told AFP.

Mairena was sentenced to 216 years in prison for “terrorism” and six other crimes attributed by the Prosecutor to her participation in the protests, including the death of four police officers and a civilian, said lawyer Julio Montenegro, of the non-governmental Commission Permanent Human Rights (CPDH).

The sentence was handed down by Judge Edgard Altamirano, who in his ruling also sentenced Mena to 210 years in prison for terrorism and other crimes in the context of protests whose repression left 325 dead and hundreds of detainees, Montenegro added.

They are “too exaggerated” penalties that “have never been contemplated before” in Nicaragua, he said. However, the defendants will only serve the maximum penalty of 30 years established by Nicaraguan law.
