Ortega continues repression of prisoners on hunger strike
Relatives of prisoners on hunger strike say that Daniel Ortega’s regime holds them incommunicado with their families as “part of the psychological torture”
MEXICO CITY.- Relatives of four opponents who are on a hunger strike in the El Chipote police prison in Nicaragua, including the legendary former Sandinista guerrilla commander Dora María Téllez, said on Monday that they fear for their lives and demanded their freedom.
They said that the concern is due to the fact that the dictator Daniel Ortega suspended family visits in El Chipote 52 days ago, when the last one took place, lasting two hours. They indicated that today they do not know how they are.
The Associated Press requested comment from Rosario Murillo, Ortega’s wife and official spokeswoman, but the request was not immediately returned.
Téllez, who in 1978 stormed Congress in a Sandinista armed operation against dictator Anastasio Somoza, served 66 years in prison, where she was taken for being the founder of the opposition UNAMOS party (formerly the Sandinista Renovation Movement, MRS). According to her relatives, the hunger strike would further affect her precarious health.
