The Policía Orteguista (PO) along with hooded civilians have been given the task of digging pits in different parts of the municipality of Jinotepe, in Carazo, as a desperate way to find more weapons and the body of Bismarck Martinez.

In the morning hours of Friday, in the San José neighborhood, where several blockades were installed last year, police raided the house of 80-year-old poet and writer Nemo Arias Dávila, who because of illness in his bones, is confined to an old wheelchair.

Arias told La Prensa that the officers, along with the civilians, entered his home and asked him if he had any weapons. “I have a gun, I tell them, if you want to see it here is the gun,” the poet replied.

While the police guarded the area, two patrols kept the road blocked for the four hours the raid lasted, led by commissioners Ramón Avellán and Pedro Rodríguez Argueta.

The police also used dogs and a metal detector, but nothing was found.

After noon on Friday, a few meters from the poet’s house, the regime forces set out to close the road with perimeter tape and, on the edge of the Pan-American Highway, where the main barrier of the demonstrations was erected last year, they started digging with picks and shovels.

Last Tuesday, the PO found on the property of Carlos Espinoza a motorcycle, six firearms, among these shotguns, AK-47 and a PKM machine gun with their respective cartridges. However, the PO has not explained the finding and the other raids it has carried out in the municipality.

The hooded civilians operating alongside the PO mobilized in a gray Hilux pick up without license plates.

Bismarck Martínez is a worker of the Mayor’s Office of Managua who disappeared last June 29, when the barricades were installed in Carazo. He hasn’t been seen since.

Sandinista militants believe that the autoconvocados (protesters) murdered him.
