Representatives of the Catholic Church in Nicaragua continue to denounce the government intimidation and harassment against the Church and its parishioners.
Cardinal Leopoldo Brenes, Metropolitan Archbishop of Managua condemned the actions of the National Police against the Church San Miguel Arcángel de Masaya on November 15. He condemns the siege of the temple as well as the siege of its parish priest, Father Edwin Román. The Vicar General of the Archdiocese of Managua pointed out that authorities of the Ortega regime constantly intimidate the faithful who visit to the parishes. Despite official complaints from the Church, pressure from the authorities continues.
