The Dictatorship is now obligating all government workers to full out an FSLN “militant’s card,” including information on relatives living and dead, and their social media accounts.
HAVANA TIMES – Thousands of Nicaraguan public employees returned to work at the State institutions on Monday, January 8th. They begin the new year the same way they ended 2023 – under ever greater surveillance and political pressure from the Ortega regime. Now the dictatorship is demanding information about even their deceased family members.
Several public employees reported to Confidencial that they were required to file an application for their “Sandinista Party Militant’s card.”
“The workers at all the State institutions will be obligated to fill out registration cards as party militants, and to read a memo from Rosario Murillo giving the parameters, both institutional and political, that will be in effect in these institutions. The activity will be subject to follow-up by the political secretaries in each institution, and by those on the departmental level,” one of the employees wrote.
Other information received indicates that the doctors and staff of the Bertha Calderon Hospital were among the first ones forced to fill out this political registration card, early in the morning of January 8th.
“It’s a card for new affiliates and for the government’s internal census. The problem with filling it out is that you have to give all your information, and to confirm whether you are or aren’t part of the Sandinista Front,” denounced another public employee.
