CWN Editor's Note: The Nicaraguan government has shut down Radio Maria, one of the few media outlets controlled by the Catholic Church, and seized the station’s assets.

The ministry of the interior claimed that the seizure was prompted by a failure of Radio Maria to file timely financial statements.

The station was once controlled by Bishop Rolando Alvarez, a prominent critic of the Ortega regime, who was arrested in 2022 on charges of conspiring against the government, and is now living in exile in Rome.
