Nicaragua suspends mission of the IACHR because it considers it to be an interventionist

Nicaragua suspended the work mission of the agencies that are part of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (CIDH) for their biased reports.

The Interdisciplinary Group of Independent Experts (GIEI) and the Special Follow-up Mechanism for Nicaragua (MESENI), agencies of the IACHR, were suspended from staying in Nicaragua by decision of the Government of Daniel Ortega.

The State's version indicates these instances of not being impartial and lacking in objectivity and indicate that they will allow their reinstatement when the conditions of respect for sovereignty and the cessation of interference in the internal affairs of Nicaragua are restored.

The GIEI and the MESENI arrived in Nicaragua to investigate and follow up on the events that have taken place in this nation since April 18 of this year, when the socio-political crisis began. Some Members consider that these bodies only respond to US interests.

The GIEI arrived in Nicaragua on July 3 of this year as part of the agreements reached between the Government and the Civic Alliance for Justice and Democracy at the national dialogue table.

The representatives of the agencies of the IACHR refused to have their reports biased. Both bodies assured that they will continue monitoring the situation facing this country from its headquarters in Washington, capital of the US, where they will present their most recent report of the events registered in Nicaragua.
