Financial repression under the Ortega-Murillo regime's command

Financial repression under the Ortega-Murillo regime’s command

Expediente Público

The Nicaraguan regime first utilized the state apparatus to pursue and repress those it considers detractors, and then extended its reach to include private banking. 

Banks comply with the orders of the Daniel Ortega and Rosario Murillo regime, which controls the legal framework of the financial system, for example, through anti-money laundering laws. 

The issue is that these instruments are international, and with them, the regime is managing to close accounts in Costa Rica belonging to well-known opponents and legally established civil society organizations in exile.
