Nicaragua Seeks to Repatriate 352 Foreign Inmates

(Prensa Latina) Nicaragua’s judicial authorities now seek the repatriation of 352 foreign prisoners who remain in the National Penitentiary System convicted of various crimes.

According to the judge of the Supreme Court of Justice (CSJ) Rafael Solis, these prisoners could be back in their countries by the end of 2013.

At least thirty inmates with other nationalities were returned to their respective countries from January to date, he said, in a conversation with reporters.

He said that some of those who remain in Nicaraguan jails will be transferred under the figure of expulsion, while others will end the sentences imposed in their countries of origin, consistent with the provisions of international agreements.

In the second case must prevail as a prerequisite the will of the accused, he said.

Potential repatriates include Colombians, Mexicans and prisoners from Central American countries.
