Daniel Ortega Says Nicaraguans Taken Refuge In Costa Rica Can Return Without Fear of Reprisals

President Daniel Ortega said on Wednesday, before thousands of Nicaraguans who ratified their support for the Sandinista Government, Nicaraguans who “do not have (criminal) cases on them or who have not committed crimes can return and no one is going to touch them, and they can reconnect with their families.”

Ortega also said he will ask Costa Rica “a list of people who are seeking asylum” to indicate who committed crimes in the context of the protests that affect the country and should be tried by its justice system.

“Those who feel free of sin, can return, with the assurance that no one is going to detain (arrested) them,” the president promised.

But the Costa Rican Ministry of Foreign Affairs said it cannot give details about asylum seekers or refugees since it is sensitive information that is governed by the principle of confidentiality.

Costa Rica’s immigration service confirmed a ‘shocking decrease” in the number of Nicaraguan refugee claims, from 21,000 in June and July to 5,000 this month.
