The Tica (Costa Rican) model told the Court that Nicaragua’s First Lady and wife of President Daniel Ortega, Rosario Murillo, told her over the phone she was free to go.

“I am innocent, because they let me free and took me to the Barcelo (hotel). Hence the Minister of the Ministry of the Family spoke with the First Lady of the country, who put her on the speaker and said, ‘you are free, go out in the morning flight, be calm,’ and now I’m going through this process unfairly. They involved me in a story that has not been well told,” said the model to judge Indiana Gallardo and reported by La Prensa in Nicaragua.
