Channel 12 of Nicaragua is one step away from being auctioned off; they denounce that Ortega’s channels are immune to the Tax Directorate

“Judge Silvia Elena Chica Larios, head of the Fourth Civil District Court of Managua, did not accept the evidence offered by the Nicavisión SA company, which operates the media communications of Channel 12, in rejection of a second fiscal objection of seven million cordobas [about US $ 200 thousand] imposed by the General Directorate of Income (DGI).

The past September 12, the DGI notified Channel 12 of a fiscal repair for 21 million córdobas [monetary unit of Nicaragua] for alleged undeclared income between 2011 and 2013 and the seizure of their properties. The media, critical of Daniel Ortega’s regime, appealed the embargo, but justice did not give rise to the opposition presented.


An investigation published this Monday by the Reuters news agency revealed that the channels of the Ortega - Murillo family, run by the offspring of the dictatorial couple, owe millions to the DGI in taxes since they became controlled by the regime.”
