Nicaragua offers refuge to Lucia Morett

This just in from Telesur (via Aporrea):

The Government of Nicaragua offered protection to the Mexican, Lucia Morett, who survived the massacre that Colombia perpetrated March 1, in Ecuadorian territory.

This was announced by the Latin American Association for Human Rights (ALDHU), which informed that Morett, who received treatment for injuries sustained during the bombing in a military hospital in Quito, left for Managua on Wednesday. She was received there by Nicaraguan president Daniel Ortega.

“The Government of Nicaragua has offered protection and aid to this victim of the massacre of March 1, in addition to that offered by Ecuador. Lucia Morett will arrive in Mexico next week,” said ALDHU secretary-general Juan de Dios Parra, of Chile.

Parra added that Morett, who was the only Mexican survivor of the attack, travelled to the Nicaraguan capital in the company of her parents and functionaries of ALDHU, a non-governmental organization with headquarters in Quito.

In the military incursion, which Quito maintains ruptured diplomatic relations with Colombia, four Mexican university students were killed, along with FARC guerrilla chief Raul Reyes and an Ecuadorian citizen.

Translation mine.

Kudos to Daniel Ortega. Typically, you can count on a Sandinista to do the decent thing.

    In my opinion, Lucía Morett is an example of a compromissed young people, in solidarity with the fight of peoples for liberation and changes of social conditions of poor sectors of population.
