(ANSA) – VATICAN CITY, June 30 – “The country led by Ortega since April 2018 is witnessing a profound socio-political crisis, accompanied by numerous crimes against religious. Aggression, harassment and persecution of members of the clergy are now daily and to this we must also add the cancellation of the residence permits of foreign priests “. This was underlined by the director of the pontifical foundation Aid to the Church in Need Alessandro Monteduro. Referring to the Ortega regime’s decision to send away the sisters of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, ACS underlines that “the nuns have been expelled along with 101 other charitable groups. In this oppressive climate, the Catholic Church is unsuccessfully trying to mediate between the government and the opposition. Unfortunately it has become the target of attacks and reprisals also for having given shelter in its buildings to demonstrators demanding the release of political prisoners. The Church – concludes Monteduro – will not stop denouncing violations of human rights, including religious freedom, but the prospects for the future are bleak “.
