Nicaragua: 16 activists released; 61 people remain in prison
Activists known as “Aguadores” were released on 30 December but still face charges. Their trial was scheduled for 30 January but got postponed and has yet to take place. As of 27 February 2020, at least 61 people remained in detention for reasons related to the 2018 protests. We will continue to explore actions to ensure that the activists’ charges are dropped and seek the release of other people still in prison.
