Top Nicaragua Diplomat Slams President As Dictator

Nicaragua’s ambassador to the Organization of American States (OAS) Arturo McFields has condemned the government of President Daniel Ortega, accusing it of repressing the political opposition, human rights abuses and cracking down on freedom of speech. In a video address posted on Twitter on Wednesday McFields said he was speaking up on behalf of dozens of political prisoners and more than 300 people who have died in the country since protests broke out against Ortega in 2018.
