Nicaraguan Dictatorship Releases Bishop Álvarez, Brother Bishop, and Priests

Bishop Rolando Álvarez of Matagalpa, Nicaragua, monitored by police in early August 2022, has now been released from prison.

The Ortega dictatorship issued a statement thanking Pope Francis and Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin and his team ‘for the very respectful and discreet coordination that made possible the trip to the Vatican of two bishops, 15 priests, and two seminarians.’
