“On May 19, prosecutors accused Víctor Ticay, a correspondent for the Nicaraguan TV station Canal 10, of treason and cybercrime, according to multiple news reports. He has been held at a police station in Managua, the capital, since he was arrested while covering an Easter celebration on April 6.


Those news reports said that one suspect arrested at the same time and facing the same accusations as Ticay was expected in court on June 7. CPJ could not immediately determine if Ticay is also due in court on that date.

If charged and convicted of treason, Ticay could face up to six years in prison. Convictions for cybercrime carry up to 10 years.”
