The dictatorship of President Daniel Ortega and his wife, Vice President Rosario Murillo, in Nicaragua has set up the red and black flags of the Sandinista National Liberation Front, the regime’s political party, in front of the cathedral in Matagalpa.
The bishop of Matagalpa, Rolando Álvarez, was sentenced Feb. 10 to 26 years and four months prison, charged with treason to the homeland.
Ortega has been in power since 2007. The Sandinistas are a socialist political party.
In a statement to EWTN News, Martha Patricia Molina, a researcher and the author of the report “Nicaragua: A Persecuted Church?”, charged that “obviously this is one more provocation from the Sandinista dictatorship against the Nicaraguan Catholic Church.”
