Holy See will not lodge formal diplomatic protest against Nicaragua

[NuVatican must still regard El Camarada/Commandante/Presidente Ortega and his thuggish comrades as nice guys!]

Catholic World News – July 13, 2018

The Vatican’s Secretary of State said that the Holy See will not lodge a formal diplomatic protest against Nicaragua after masked paramilitary supporters of the Ortega regime stormed a basilica [see comment below] in which the apostolic nuncio was present.

Cardinal Pietro Parolin praised the nuncio, Archbishop Waldemar Sommertag, for handling the situation “very well” and said he looked forward to the resumption of dialogue between the regime and its opponents, but “there must be a desire on both sides to reach a compromise.”

Between April 19 and July 10, 351 people were killed and 2,100 were wounded in violence in Nicaragua, according to a report by the Nicaraguan Association for Human Rights. The association also found that 329 people were kidnapped, and 68 were tortured, by the Nicaraguan police and its paramilitary allies.
