Promoting Accountability for the Ortega-Murillo Regime for Restricting Freedoms


The Department of State today took additional actions to promote accountability for those involved in the Ortega-Murillo government’s relentless attacks on the human rights and fundamental freedoms of Nicaraguans.  We are taking steps to impose visa restrictions on more than 100 Nicaraguan municipal officials for their role in the Ortega-Murillo government, which continues to engage in a repressive campaign that silences civil society and unjustly detains courageous individuals for exercising their fundamental freedoms.

We continue to work with the international community to promote accountability for those threatening democracy in Nicaragua.   We remain committed to supporting the Nicaraguan people and ensuring their human rights are protected.

This action was taken pursuant to Presidential Proclamation 10309, which suspends entry into the United States as immigrants and nonimmigrants of persons responsible for policies or actions that threaten democracy in Nicaragua.
