Nicaragua’s Civic Alliance: 86 Political Prisoners Remain after Today’s Release

Medardo Mairena and Pedro Mena, farm leaders and members of the Civic Alliance, who had been sentenced to over 200 years in prison each on false charges.


“Apparently, the Government did it with the intention of not releasing anyone else,” warns Civic Alliance’s spokesperson, Jose Pallais

HAVANA TIMES – With the release of 56 political prisoners on Tuesday morning, among them the main leaders of the civic protests and emblematic figures of the April Rebellion, there are still  over 80 political prisoners in the jails of the Ortega dictatorship, Civic Alliance’s spokesperson, Jose Pallais, told Confidencial.

“We have a preliminary report. Yesterday, we had 136 pending (to be released) and the information that we have is that today 56 political prisoners are out. That would leave 80. We are working on a final list, it takes a meticulous job to know who they are. We have to do a review of the lists,” said Pallais.

The Alliance’s representative also confirmed that, among those 56 people released, are the most representative figures of the struggle. “However, apparently the Government did it with the intention of not releasing anyone else,” he added.

“The information we have is that the Government is supposedly saying that these are all of the prisoners. Then, that is the problem.” Pallais assessed.

“What we are planning on doing is, first, to have information about who they are, on what list they were on and depending on that, different actions will be taken,” he said.

One of the difficulties in being precise has been that Ortega’s police and paramilitary forces have continued to detain protestors during the period when other political prisoners were released.

    The directors and main figures of the genocide and dictatorial regime, ortega murillo, want to wash their hands and their collaborators assessins, that have been murdering the opposition for years until Nicaragua woke up, what they didn’t expected, but everything has an end, and Ortega murillo dynasty is over. The amnesty autoproclaimed by the genocides is to protect those who have killed hundreds of Pacific protesters, but the people of Nicaragua demand justice, more bullcrap from those genocides.
