Nicaraguan priest found guilty of conspiring against state
January 18, 2023
CWN Editor's Note: A criminal court has found Father Oscar Benavidez Davila guilty of “conspiracy to undermine national security and sovereignty.” He faces a sentence of up to eight years.
The priest was arrested last August after he posted a statement on social media criticizing the government.
Bishop Rolando Alvarez of Matagalpa will face trial on a similar charge.
