OFFICIAL STATEMENT 174
Arrests and Siege in the Church of San Miguel de Masaya (Nicaragua)

​The Spanish Government expresses its concern over the recent arrests of more than 13 Nicaraguan citizens who supported relatives of political prisoners who, gathered in the Church of San Miguel de Masaya, remain on hunger strike to request their release

16/11/2019

Likewise, the Spanish Government requests the immediate lifting of the police siege to which the parish priest and the believers who accompany him are subjected in said church.
 
Freedom of expression, demonstration and assembly are basic pillars of democracy guaranteed by the Nicaraguan Constitution.

Spain demands an urgent solution for the crisis through a political negotiation based on respect for human rights and democratic values.
