Statement by the Government of Chile on the situation in Nicaragua

Sunday, December 16, 2018

The Government of Chile strongly rejects the cancellation of the legal personality of a number of Nicaraguan organizations dedicated to the defence of freedom and human rights in Nicaragua.

This measure, which is inexplicable and indefensible, is a cause of extreme concern to us and has already given rise to widespread condemnation by the international community.

The Government of Chile urges the Government of Nicaragua to rescind these measures, which clearly contravene all regional and universal instruments on the free expression and protection of human rights.

Once again, it calls on the Government of Nicaragua to resolve the serious crisis that the country is going through by means of a broad and inclusive dialogue with the participation of all sectors of Nicaraguan society.
