Nicaragua Takes Over Catholic University, Saying It Was a Center of Terrorism

From a Wall Street Journal story by José de Córdoba headlined “Ortega Regime Seizes Catholic University in Nicaragua”:

A Nicaraguan court ordered the government seizure of the Jesuit-run Central American University, declaring that the school was a “center of terrorism.”

President Daniel Ortega’s confiscation of the university is the latest blow to the Catholic church, universities and the remnants of Nicaragua’s battered civil society. The government has expelled and imprisoned priests, including a bishop, and many political opponents.

The university said Wednesday that a court ordered the confiscation of its property and bank accounts, saying that the university had become a “center of terrorism, organizing delinquent groups.”
