Four days after being captured at the Managua International Airport, the campesino movement leaders Medardo Mairena and Pedro Mena are missing and the Permanent Human Rights Commission (CPDH) passed them on to the list of the missing.
“They are missing and the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) and the United Nations (UN) have been informed of that,” said lawyer Yonarquis Martínez, from CPDH.
The CPDH presented appeals on Monday in favor of the Mairena and Mena, arrested on Friday when they were going to take a flight to the United States.
Mairena is a member of the Civic Alliance for Justice and Democracy, and the National Police issued a press release describing him as a terrorist and responsible for the death of four police officers and a civilian in a shooting that occurred last Thursday in the municipality of Morrito, Río San Juan.
On Sunday he would have been appeared in court, the 48-hour time limit for arrest, where a preliminary hearing date was expected to be set. But he was not presented by the authorities.
The lawyer of the CPDH, Julio Montenegro, assured that until noon of Monday the information system of the Central Judicial Complex of Managua did not report the entry of any accusation against the two men.
