Belgian Financial Sanctions,

The National Police of Nicaragua is responsible for the degrading treatment, including physical and psychological torture, of those who opposed the Ortega regime. It is responsible for the unlawful imprisonment of presidential pre-candidates, civil society leaders, student and rural leaders or independent journalists without any legal and democratic guarantees. The National Police was instrumental in Daniel Ortega avoiding facing any real democratic opposition during the general elections of 7 Nov 2021. Prior to those elections, the National Police conducted continuous surveillance and persecution of opposition leaders, unlawful residential break-ins and arbitrary arrests of opposition members, and it systematically threatened public employees. In 2018, the National Police was involved in killings of peaceful protesters across Nicaragua. The National Police of Nicaragua is therefore responsible for serious violations of human rights, repression of civil society and democratic opposition, and undermining democracy and the rule of law in Nicaragua.

Date de création : 22/08/1979 - La police nationale du Nicaragua est responsable de traitements dégradants, y compris de torture physique et psychologique, à l'encontre des personnes qui se sont opposées au régime Ortega. Elle est responsable de l'emprisonnement illégal de précandidats à l'élection présidentielle, de dirigeants de la société civile, de dirigeants étudiants et ruraux ou de journalistes indépendants, sans aucune garantie juridique et démocratique. La police nationale a joué un rôle important qui a permis à Daniel Ortega d'éviter de faire face à une véritable opposition démocratique lors des élections législatives du 7 novembre 2021. Avant les élections, la police nationale a mené une surveillance et des persécutions continues à l'encontre des dirigeants de l'opposition, a procédé à des visites domiciliaires illégales et à des arrestations arbitraires de membres de l'opposition, et a systématiquement menacé des agents de la fonction publique. En 2018, la police nationale a été impliquée dans des assassinats de manifestants pacifiques à travers le Nicaragua. La police nationale du Nicaragua est donc responsable de graves violations des droits de l'homme, de la répression à l'égard de la société civile et de l'opposition démocratique ainsi que d'atteintes à la démocratie et à l'état de droit au Nicaragua.
