The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR), in its visit to Nicaragua three weeks ago, verified violence and urged the government of Daniel Ortega to “halt the repression of the protests”.

In addition, the IAHCR asked Nicaraguan authorities to “investigate and sanction” the use of force by “paramilitaries” and to dismantle the said groups, as well as to seek “a peaceful, constitutional and democratic solution to the current political crisis affecting the country.”

Alvarado said that the Nicaraguan crisis is a source of “daily consternation and concern” for Costa Ricans.

The president emphasized “the historical, economic and family ties” uniting Nicaragua and Costa Rica.
