The Daniel Ortega regime arrested Francisco Aguirre-Sacasa, a former foreign minister and ambassador to the United States from Nicaragua, as part of a crackdown on domestic opponents in 2021. The government sentenced him for alleged crimes against national sovereignty and held him in El Chipote prison until February 2023, when he and 221 other political prisoners were released and deported to the United States.  

Please join Hudson Institute Adjunct Fellow Daniel Batlle for a conversation with Aguirre-Sacasa on his experience as a political prisoner and the repressive nature of the Ortega regime.
