At the beginning of last week, the US House of Representatives passed a bill, the “Nicaraguan Investment conditionality act”, renamed “Nica Act”, calling for economic sanctions against Daniel Ortega’s government. The law looks to stop Ortega from accessing international funds. The Government of Nicaragua, in a press release, rejected the “Nica Act”, calling it a serious violation of international law and the United Nations charter.
The Archbishop of Managua, Cardinal Leopoldo Brenes, said: “There is no doubt that this initiative will have an economic impact, both for individuals and for the poor population. Many programs implemented in the country through aid will be “compromised. “Our government should look for a plan B because it is responsible for the progress and development of the Nicaraguan people”, said the Cardinal, who concluded: “this plan B should in particular consider the poorest people, so that they are not harshly affected”
According to data collected by Fides, this proposed US law intends to put pressure so that the upcoming elections on 6 November in Nicaragua are held in a free manner and monitored by international observers.

    This is a blatant attack upon the independence of a free and sovereign nation while utilizing the gullibility of uninformed people to make a case, based upon the illusion of compassion. The United Nations has NO right, legal or moral, to set expectations for nations. The very idea !! International observers to manage an election ?!?!?!

    What is wrong with the people if planet Earth?? This is little more than pandering for global domination. I trust that people see through this evil effort.
