Less than a week after abducting the bishop of Matagalpa and apostolic administrator of Estelí, Rolando Álvarez, the dictatorship of Daniel Ortega in Nicaragua has silenced another Catholic radio station.
Radio Stereo Fe of the Diocese of Estelí lamented Aug. 24 on Facebook that “almost 28 years of radio evangelization on FM have ended today.”
“Today we had a visit from the gentlemen of TELCOR (Nicaraguan Institute of Telecommunications and Post Office), Managua,” who “handed us the notification informing us that our radio (signal) has to be turned off immediately,” the Catholic radio station announced.
The reason used by the telecommunications regulatory agency of the Ortega dictatorship “is that the radio station is functioning with the license in the name of Father Francisco Valdivia,” a deceased priest, “and that the new director doesn’t have any permission.”
