U.S. sanctions the National Police of Nicaragua

The United States Treasury Department on Thursday imposed sanctions on the National Police of Nicaragua, as well as the general commissioners Luis Alberto Pérez Olivas, head of the Judicial Assistance Directorate (DAJ) that controls the El Chipote jail; Justo Pastor Urbina, head of the Directorate of Special Operations (DOEP), and the chief commissioner Juan Alberto Valle Valle, head of the Managua Traffic Brigade Directorate.

With these sanctions, the three commissioners join the list of senior officers sanctioned by the United States: General Commissioner Ramón Avellán, Deputy Director of the Police, and First Commissioner Francisco Díaz, General Director of the Institution.

The US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, wrote on Twitter that “Today’s sanctions on the Nicaraguan National Police and three commissioners take aim at one of the main tools the Ortega regime uses to violently repress the people of #Nicaragua. We will continue to promote accountability of the regime for #HumanRights abuses.”
