Nicaraguan Dictator Daniel Ortega Closes Two Catholic Universities

“Nicaraguan dictator Daniel Ortega has continued his fierce assault on the Catholic Church, shuttering two important Catholic universities and appropriating their assets.

In the official government newspaper La Gaceta, the Ministry of the Interior published Tuesday the annulment of the legal status of the Juan Pablo II University, based in Managua and four other cities, and the Autonomous Christian University of Nicaragua (UCAN), based in León and five other cities.

The authorities of the two now defunct Catholic universities are required to deliver to the government of Daniel Ortega their databases containing all information on their students as well as their teachers.

The Ortega regime justified its move by asserting that the two universities were guilty of “violations” of laws, declaring that they had failed to punctually file a report of their financial status.” — More at Breitbart
