Nicaragua: Over 130 people remain in detention

, Index number: AMR 43/1249/2019

After one year and a half since the beginning of the crisis in Nicaragua, at least 130 people continue detained, among them is Maria Guadalupe Ruiz Briceño (22), a student imprisoned after she participated in a July 2019 protest. We urge the Nicaraguan authorities to immediately release and drop all charges of those detained solely on the grounds of their exercise of the right to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly.
