Nicaraguan journalist marks one year in prison

"Nicaraguan journalist Victor Ticay, imprisoned by the government of President Daniel Ortega after covering a religious activity, marked one year in prison on April 6 amid demands from organizations that defend press freedom that he be released.

Ticay, originally from Nandaime, a city located about 70 kilometers south of Managua, was arrested on April 6, 2023, after covering an activity during Holy Week in his town.

The Special Rapporteur for Freedom of Expression of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR), Pedro Vaca, said that Ticay's detention 'was arbitrary' and called for his release, marking one year since he was apprehended."
