The Europeans managed to corroborate the inhumane conditions that persist in the cells of infamous “El Chipote” during their visit, which since they have denounced the conditions and.

Faria also published a powerful photograph in which the director and owner of the 100% Noticias Miguel Mora, is greatly deteriorated.

The European Parliament denounced that Mora remains imprisoned in a completely dark cell and that for almost 40 days he has not been able to see sunlight, running a high risk of developing blindness.

“Subhuman conditions in the prisons offered by the Ortega regime. I ask for immediate freedom for these citizens who are not criminals and who only love their country,” the MEP wrote.

Both Piñeda and Mora were arrested on after the Ortega government ordered a raid on the cable news channel. Mora’s wife was also arrested, but released hours later. Several other journalists are still wanted.

The start of trial for both journalists is scheduled for January 30. Both are accused of “Inciting Hatred” and “Fake News”
