Managua. The former Nicaraguan ambassador to the Organization of American States (OAS), Edgard Parrales, was arrested yesterday in Managua, after he criticized President Daniel Ortega’s decision to withdraw his country from the hemispheric body, reported the president of the Nicaraguan Center for Human Rights, Vilma Núñez. Parrales is the first major detainee after Ortega secured a fourth consecutive term earlier this month in an election strongly criticized by the United States and its allies. Parrales was Nicaragua’s ambassador to the OAS in the 1980s, during Ortega’s first government.
