Reading Time: < 1 minute

A man with chains in his hands and a Nicaraguan flag participates in a mass of thanksgiving for the release of what the opposition considers ‘political prisoners’ at the Metropolitan Cathedral of Managua, in Managua, Nicaragua.

Between 27 February and 11 June, the Government has released some 442 people who were imprisoned for participating in protests against President Ortega, of which the last 106 did so under the Amnesty Law.
