The government today sanctioned four officials of the “inner circle” of the president of Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega, whom he accused of persecuting the citizens of his country, enacting repressive laws, silencing the media and denying them medical attention.

The measure, which consists in blocking the assets that these officials have in the country, affects the president of the National Assembly of Nicaragua, Gustavo Eduardo Porras Cortés; the general director of the Institute of Telecommunications and Postal Services (TELCOR), Orlando Castillo, as well as the ministers of Health, Sonia Castro González, and Transport, Oscar Salvador Mojica Obregón.

“The Government of Nicaragua continues to violate the human rights of the people, implementing laws of exploitation and violence and keeping hundreds of people as political prisoners,” said Undersecretary of the Treasury for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, Sigal Mandelker, in a statement.
