The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) has pointed out that in Nicaragua the National Police and the “para-police” forces of the Government are possibly carrying out “extrajudicial executions”.

The number of fatalities due to the worst sociopolitical crisis of the last three decades in Nicaragua amounted to 139, reported this Sunday (10.06.2018) by the Nicaraguan Center for Human Rights (Cenidh).

The latest victims, all civilians, perished between Friday night and Saturday in the cities of Managua, Masaya and Jinotega, according to the humanitarian organization.

According to the Center, the deaths of four men, including one child, followed the same pattern as the majority: high-caliber bullet wounds to the head, neck or torso.

This pattern led the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) to point out that in Nicaragua the National Police and the “para-police” forces of the Government are possibly carrying out “extrajudicial executions,” something that the Amnesty International movement classified as confirmed information.

The humanitarian organizations and population of Nicaragua are convinced that the government of Daniel Ortega uses snipers against the demonstrators, which until now has not been confirmed except in photographs circulating on social networks.

The murders occurred while President Daniel Ortega takes his time to respond to a letter that the bishops gave him with a proposal for “democratization” of the country, before which he said he would “reflect.” Nicaragua is today 54 days of the bloodiest sociopolitical crisis in recent decades.
