They pointed out that such sanctions will aim at freezing assets and refusing entry into the countries of the European Union.
European individuals or companies will not be allowed to finance the persons or entities sanctioned in Nicaragua.
They explained that such measures will not harm the population, but rather the government of Daniel Ortega, the security forces, and the armed groups related to his regime.
