Officials of the National Police detained Katherine Urbina on Friday afternoon while denouncing the attacks that were carried out against students entrenched in the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Nicaragua (UNAN-Managua) – National Autonomous University of Nicaragua. Urbina was recording a Facebook Live questioning the officers why they did not stop the attack.
“I want to make a complaint, where can I do it? Urbina asked the officers in her video. Before the negative answer of the officials, Urbina questioned them if they would not do anything, because “they are also human, they are also Nicaraguan citizens and they are killing them. They do not think to do anything?” Urbina continued.
One of the officers told Urbina: “Calláte hijueputa” (shut up, SOB), they surrounded her and stopped her. Urbina is the granddaughter of the Sandinista legislator of the Caribbean Coast, Antenor Enrique Urbina Leyva. She was taken to District One police station.
Five people were injured as a result of the attack perpetrated by the police and paramilitary forces.
This is the video that Urbina recorded on her Facebook account:
