CWN Editor's Note: Father Osman José Amador Guillén was arrested by Nicaraguan police after praying for Bishop Rolando Álvarez, who was sentenced earlier this year to 26 years in prison.

“There was no court order that justified his arrest,” said Martha Patricia Molina, an attorney who has written on the persecution of the Church in Nicaragua. “His whereabouts are unknown.”
