Lawyer and researcher Martha Patricia Molina Montenegro reported that “2022 was the most disastrous year for the Nicaraguan Catholic Church.”
In a text shared with ACI Prensa, CNA’s Spanish language sister news agency, Molina wrote that in one year the Church was the target of “140 attacks from the Sandinista dictatorship."
President Daniel Ortega and his wife Rosario Murillo have been ruling Nicaragua as a dictatorship since 2007.
Molina pointed out that among the attacks "there are unjust criminal proceedings that do not adhere to what the laws mandate, confiscations, kidnappings, hate speech and the prevention of freedom of movement."
