Amnesty Report: “Instilling terror: from lethal force to persecution in Nicaragua

Instilling terror: from lethal force to persecution in Nicaragua

6 months into the socio-political crisis Amnesty International comes out with their second report on the situation in Nicaragua.

This report documents several human rights violations committed between 30 May and 18 September 2018 and details the different elements that make up the state strategy of repression to suppress the protests. Amnesty International believes that these violations were carried out not only with the knowledge of the highest authorities of the Nicaraguan state, including the President and Vice-President of the Republic, but also (in many cases) on their orders and under their command.
