Nicaragua: IAPA denounces serious health deterioration of journalists imprisoned by Daniel Ortega's regime

"At least six journalists imprisoned in Nicaragua by the regime of Daniel Ortega are suffering serious health deterioration, after months of being imprisoned in torture-like conditions, denounced the Inter American Press Association (IAPA), through a statement.

The IAPA warned this week that these six journalists were condemned to sentences of up to 13 years in prison, after facing 'summary trials, without due process and for non-existent crimes.'

The organization urged in a press release that journalists Miguel Mora, Miguel Mendoza, Jaime Arellano, Pedro Joaquín Chamorro, Juan Lorenzo Holmann and Cristiana Chamorro, former presidential candidate and journalist, be freed 'as prisoners of conscience.'"
