EU ADDS 8 NAMES TO NICARAGUA SANCTIONS LIST

EU Regulation 2021/1276/EU added new names to the sanctions imposed in response to the actions of the Nicaraguan authorities against opposition parties, media, journalists and other media workers, human rights defenders and civil society, including through the systematic detention and arrest of potential presidential candidates and opposition leaders.  Those designated include the Vice President (who is also the wife of President Daniel Ortega), the President of the National Assembly, the Leader in Nicaraguan National Police, the Attorney General, and the President of the Supreme Court of Justice.
