White House condemns Ortega on abuses in Nicaragua

By A.M. Costa Rica wire services

The United States strongly condemns the ongoing violence in Nicaragua and human rights abuses committed by the Ortega regime in response to protests.

After years of fraudulent elections and the regime’s manipulation of Nicaraguan law – as well as the suppression of civil society, opposition parties, and independent media – the Nicaraguan people have taken to the streets to call for democratic reforms.

These demands have been met with indiscriminate violence, with more than 350 dead, thousands injured, and hundreds of citizens falsely labeled “coup-mongers” and “terrorists” who have been jailed, tortured, or who have gone missing. President Ortega and Vice President Murillo are ultimately responsible for the pro-government parapolice that have brutalized their own people.


The United States stands with the people of Nicaragua, including members of the Sandinista Party, who are calling for democratic reforms and an end to the violence.

Free, fair, and transparent elections are the only avenue toward restoring democracy in Nicaragua. We support the Catholic Church-led national dialogue process for good faith negotiations.

The Trump Administration has designated three Nicaraguan officials – Francisco Diaz, Fidel Moreno, and Francisco Lopez – under the Global Magnitsky Act for human rights abuses and corruption.

Through these sanctions, the United States is demonstrating that it will hold Ortega regime officials who authorize violence and abuses or who steal from the Nicaraguan people responsible for their actions. These are a start, not an end, of potential sanctions.

The United States is revoking or restricting visas of Nicaraguan officials and their families when those officials have been responsible for police violence against protestors and municipal authorities, when they have supported pro-government para-police violence, or when they have prevented victims from receiving care.

The Trump Administration has secured the return of vehicles donated to the Nicaraguan National Police that have been used to violently suppress peaceful protests, and it has cut off further sales and donations of equipment that Ortega’s security forces might misuse.

The Trump Administration has secured the return of vehicles donated to the Nicaraguan National Police that have been used to violently suppress peaceful protests, and it has cut off further sales and donations of equipment that Ortega’s security forces might misuse. 

The United States has announced an additional $1.5 million in aid to continue support for freedom and democracy in Nicaragua, providing a critical lifeline for civil society, human rights organizations, and independent media currently under threat from the Ortega regime.

We are engaging with regional partners and have issued a declaration of support for the people of Nicaragua at the Organization of American States (OAS) General Assembly and passed a resolution in the OAS condemning the violence, supporting the work of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights to investigate the violence and promoting early elections.


Senior Administration officials, including Vice President Pence, Secretary Pompeo, and Ambassador Haley, have highlighted human rights abuses in Nicaragua and publicly demanded that the Ortega regime immediately end the state-sanctioned violence perpetrated by police and para-police forces. The United States will continue to monitor the situation in Nicaragua closely and work with the international community to hold those responsible for the violence to account.



Police arrest 3 Canadians in methamphetamines case

By A.M. Costa Rica staff

Three Canadian men were detained by officers and accused of carrying more than a thousand doses of methamphetamine in a vehicle in Ciudad Colón.

According to the Police Ministry, the drugs have a street value ¢169,000.

The suspects and ages are Stack, 52, Gallotta, 35, and Anderson, whose age was not reported.

The ministry said “officers intercepted the suspected car after receiving a call about a group of foreigners with a strange attitude. Immediately, the police managed to detect the men with the money and the drug load.”

Since drugs were involved, officers requested the collaboration of the Drug Control Police who determined that the substances in the vehicle were 502 doses of pink colored methamphetamine and 504 doses of a gray methamphetamine, in the shape of a diamond.

The suspects  were sent to the Public Ministry
as drug trafficking suspects.
 

Two of the three captured men do not have police records, and all were sent to the Public Ministry as drug trafficking suspects.

  Immigrants detained in Texas are on hunger strike  


By A.M. Costa Rica wire services

A group of immigrant fathers, recently reunified with their sons and detained in Texas, have gone on a hunger strike to demand their release, an immigrant rights group representing them said Thursday.

The Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services said that the men informed them that they were being held at a detention center in Karnes City, Texas, with no notification from U.S. authorities on their immigration status.

It was not immediately clear how many fathers have joined the hunger strike which began Wednesday.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement did not comment on whether a hunger strike was taking place. The agency said in a statement it respected the rights of detainees to voice their opinion and would not retaliate in any way.

"We are desperate, we are tired of being incarcerated and we want to be released with our sons," read a letter to the media from a detainee named "Jorge," and read out on a conference call hosted by the immigrant center. The letter said it represented 400 families.

U.S. President Donald Trump has taken a hardline stance on immigration as an integral part of his presidency and has promised to keep immigrants targeted for deportation locked up "pending the outcome of their removal proceedings."

Some 2,500 children were separated from their parents as part of a zero tolerance policy toward illegal immigration that began in early May. Many of them had crossed the U.S.-Mexican border illegally, while others had sought asylum.

The U.S. government said last week it had reunited just over half of the families.

The immigrant center said some fathers were staging sit-ins at the Karnes County Residential Center about 51 miles southeast of San Antonio and children were refusing to take part in school activities. Nearly 600 people were involved in protests, it said.


 
                                                      A.M. Costa Rica wire services photo         
 
Male immigrants at Karnes, and women and girl immigrants detained in Dilley, Texas, are among migrants who were reunited last week and then detained, the center added said. 



Private contractor GEO Group Inc., which runs the Karnes County Residential Center, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Some fathers at the center said they were misled into agreeing to deportation as a condition of seeing their children again, the immigrant center said. Others said they had not been given the opportunity to apply for asylum.

A federal judge in San Diego has placed an indefinite stay on deportations in response to a lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union.

Male immigrants at Karnes, and women and girl immigrants detained in Dilley, Texas, are among migrants who were reunited last week and then detained, the center added said.

Dance Festival begins Saturday    

By A.M. Costa Rica staff

The 17th Contemporary Dance National Festival will begin Saturday and run until Aug. 12 at the Melico Salazar Theater.

The program opens on Saturday at 8 p.m. Another part of the festival will take place at the National Center of Culture.


The festival includes three international groups and 10 national groups.

In addition to shows, there will be workshops and talks about the development of modern dance in Costa Rica.

"Contemporary dance is life. It is a form of language, like the verb and the written words. We learn to love it and, through the movement of the body, it allows us to express what we feel, see, live and what vibrates within us," said Sylvia Montero, director of the National Dance Company.

Montero added, "this festival, in addition to the artistic exhibitions, will provide workshops with international teachers and talks, both with these teachers and with other Costa Rican participants."


Today the festival offers discounted pre-sale tickets.

More information about the festival, is on the website of the Ministry of Culture here.

From Sunday to Aug. 12, tickets will cost 5,000 colones with a 50 percent discount for students with a card and citizens with gold cards. Tickets can be bought at Melico Salazar Popular Theater or at National Center of Culture.

Problems during the pilgrimage
Rectangulo110117.jpg

By A.M. Costa Rica staff


Any long journey is bound to involve mishaps, and the pilgrimage to the Basilica of Los Angeles is no exception. At the close of this edition, complications include lost dogs, illegal street vendors, arrests, and tons of garbage while the Red Cross reports it has aided to 2,500 people so far.


According to the latest information, the Red Cross has administered first aid to 1,589 women and 910 men, most of whom suffered muscle problems. Patients ages range from 20 to 59 years old, the Red Cross said. Only a small percentage had to be transferred to local medical centers. Paramedics report seeing 912 patients at the post located at the Basilica of Los Angeles.

The Cartago Municipal Police counted a total of 51 dogs that were lost or abandoned during this year's pilgrimage, a decrease from the 80 dogs abandoned last year.

Rolando Rodríguez, mayor of the canton, said, “the city council has already started a program for citizens to adopt pets that were forgotten during the pilgrimage.”

Interested persons can contact the municipality through social networks. The pets are in the Municipal Center of Education for Animal Care.

Books in English donated for rural schools


By A.M. Costa Rica staff

The The Costa Rican-North American Cultural Center has donated 7,221 books in English to rural and low-income schools.

The books include those for beginners, intermediate and advanced English speakers.

The center said it seeks to provide texts in English to schools of limited resources in Pococí, Ciudad Cortés, Guatuso, Talamanca, Siquirres and Sarapiquí, Aserrí, Moravia, Paraíso and Alajuelita.

"We seek to support the communities, either through English courses with certain projects of social projection and in other cases, as in this, with the donation of materials to promote schools in a better teaching of English, with the purpose that more and more people have better employment opportunities," said Paul Garnier, president of the Board of Directors of the center.

Tourists rescued from Isla Tortuga

Belgian tourists were rescued in San Carlos


By A.M. Costa Rica staff

The Red Cross of San Carlos reported the rescue of five Belgian tourists and their guide who had become isolated on the edges of La Fortuna Waterfall in San Carlos.

The tourists were taking pictures of the area when there was a sudden wash of water and debris down the waterfall.


The water level in the area rose several meters in just a few minutes, stranding the group.


When he found the group stranded, the guide immediately called 9-1-1 and rescuers, including firemen and the Red Cross, were on the scene in less than 10 minutes.


Rescuers managed to bridge a gap of 300 meters and get the group to safety.


The guide remained behind until all of the tourists were safe, the Red Cross said.

The Red Cross administered first aid at the site but no one had been seriously injured and no hospitalizations were reported.
