The Nicaraguan regime closed another 98 NGOs: the total rises to 657 illegalized

The Daniel Ortega regime, through the parliament it controls, canceled this Thursday the legal entities of another 98 Nicaraguan NGOs on the grounds that they failed to comply with their obligations, bringing the total to 657 non-profit civil organizations banned since December 2018.

The dissolution of the 98 Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) was urgently approved by the 74 Sandinista deputies and their allies. Another 16 legislators, of the 91 that make up Parliament, abstained, and one was absent.

Among the organizations affected are the Association of Nicaraguans with Disabilities, the National Network Association for the Defense of Consumers, the Network Association of Abandoned Children and the Elderly, the Network of Communicators for Addressing HIV and AIDS in Nicaragua, among other community development organizations.

In a report, the Nicaraguan regime argued that these 98 NGOs have failed to comply with their duties and obligations established in the legislation that regulates them, “hindering the control and surveillance of the General Directorate of Registration and Control of For-Profit Organizations of the Ministry of the Government”.

In addition, these NGOs violated the General Law for the Regulation and Control of Non-Profit Organizations, in force since last May 6; as well as the Law for the Regulation of Foreign Agents, and the Law Against Money Laundering.

With these new 98 associations, the number of NGOs dissolved in the last two days rose to 191, including the Nicaraguan Writers Center, founded by the late priest and poet Ernesto Cardenal (1925-2020).

In Nicaragua, with the vote of the Sandinistas and their allies, who are the majority in Parliament, the legal status of at least 657 NGOs -including 42 foreign organizations- has been canceled since December 2018, eight months after a popular revolt broke out -originated by controversial social security reforms- described as an attempted coup by Ortega.

Sandinista deputy Filiberto Rodríguez, promoter of the initiatives, has maintained that the affected NGOs used resources from the donations they received to try to overthrow Ortega, although he has not presented evidence.

In April 2018, thousands of Nicaraguans took to the streets to protest controversial social security reforms, which later became a demand for Ortega to resign because he responded with force.

The protests, described by the Executive as a coup attempt, left at least 355 dead, according to the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR), although local organizations raise the figure to 684 and the Government recognizes 200.

Nicaragua has been going through a political and social crisis since April 2018, which has left hundreds dead in popular protests branded an attempted coup by Ortega, who has been in power for 15 years and five consecutive months amid allegations of authoritarianism and fraud. electoral.
