Nicaragua – Protection of human rights (13 December 2018)


France condemns the Nicaraguan Parliament’s decision to cancel the legal status of several human rights organizations, notably the Nicaragua Center for Human Rights and the Institute for Strategic and Public Policy Studies in Managua, whose directors were received at the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs on October 25 and December 10 respectively.

France reiterates its deep concern at the deteriorating human rights situation in Nicaragua and at the pressure exerted on human rights defenders.
