Nicaragua On Brink of Crisis

Nicaragua’s Supreme Court decided that Former President Arnordo Aleman can serve his 20-year sentence from home and move freely in Managua.

The Nicaraguan Government said the decision was “engineered” by Aleman’s political allies. The US government also reacted angrily.

Sandinistas and Aleman’s allies control Congress and the Supreme Court and have successfully undermined Bolaño’s power. Indeed, Congress recently appointed the justices responsible for the decision and voted a resolution limiting presidential powers.

This is looking like the beginning of the end for American friendly president Ernesto Bolaños.
