Q24N (EFE) The Government of Panama expressed this Wednesday its “concern” about the “recent actions” of the Nicaraguan government in the area of human rights and said that it trusts that the measures that left more than 300 Nicaraguans stateless will be annulled.

Panama hopes “that the decisions adopted by the Government of Nicaragua in matters inherent to citizenship, expatriation and nationality, which have affected the lives of more than 300 Nicaraguans, can be resolved in a sustainable manner with the annulment of said measures, in favor of safeguarding the rights of this group of people,” said a statement from the Foreign Ministry.
