Judge’s ‘civil war’ fears

Weekend Herald - - World -

A Nicaraguan Supreme Court jus­tice has re­port­edly re­signed with a scathing open let­ter to Pres­i­dent Daniel Ortega, who faced down antigov­ern­ment protests last year by un­leash­ing se­cu­rity forces and al­lied groups against demon­stra­tors. The let­ter cir­cu­lat­ing widely on so­cial me­dia was ac­com­pa­nied by a pho­to­graph of judge Rafael So­lis Cerda’s govern­ment-is­sued ID. The let­ter’s au­then­tic­ity could not be in­de­pen­dently con­firmed. So­lis is a long-time mem­ber of Ortega’s San­din­ista Front party, but his let­ter said Ortega and his wife, Vi­cePres­i­dent Rosario Murillo, are drag­ging Nicaragua to­ward a civil war.
