Nicaraguan authorities never confirmed the finding of the murdered family, but at the time the Fundación del Río, through environmentalist Amaru Ruiz denounced the massacre caused by land conflicts.

The three Nicaraguans, including two brothers named García Calderón, were arrested in Pital de San Carlos, in the province of Alajuela. The third captured is identified by his last names Morales Sequeira.

Stephen Madden, director of the immigration police, said the arrests were made at 5:50 am Tuesday, and that the detainees are wanted for “several homicides on the Nicaragua side.”

Costa Rican authorities used information provided by the Dirección de Inteligencia y Seguridad (IS) – Directorate of Intelligence and Security.

“The detainees were transferred to the Central Region Apprehension Center in Heredia, where consultations will be held with Nicaraguan authorities to confirm the arrest warrants,” Costa Rica’s immigration service reported.

According to information reported by Nicaragua’s La Prensa, the massacre occurred in the La Pimienta community, in San Juan de Nicaragua, municipality of Río San Juan.

The murder occurred on Thursday, October 3, 2019, and the deceased were identified as: Pablo Calderón Espinoza, 80; Lucrecia Pérez Dormu, 40; Yadira Pérez Martínez, 22; Isaías Calderón Pérez, 16; and one-year-old Pablo Alonzo Calderón.

“Conflict and insecurity in southeastern Nicaragua has increased due to land trafficking, mining, the invasion of settlers, the lack of institutionalism in the country and the lack of interest of the Ortega Murillo regime of addressing the environmental and social situation.’ environmentalist Amaru Ruiz. Ruiz shared on her Facebook profile last October.

In the social networks circulated a complaint allegedly prepared by inhabitants of the area, where they pointed to an ex-mobilized of the Resistance as the alleged author of the crime. The complaint stated that the man called “Domo” had committed eight murders for reasons of land trafficking in the Biological Reserve, not including the massacre of the Calderón Espinoza family.

Despite the seriousness of the complaint, the “Orteguista Police” (police loyal to the Ortega regimen) never ruled on the case, nor confirmed that there was a massacre.

Waiting on Nicaraguan authorities

Costa Rica now has to wait for Nicaragua to request the extradition of the suspects.
