Nicaragua's Interior Ministry announced on Thursday a money-laundering probe against opposition politician Cristiana Chamorro, as authorities have gathered "clear evidence" of her financial crimes.
Chamorro, who seeks to challenge president Daniel Ortega in November's presidential election, met with prosecutors on Friday to discuss the law violations regarding the "Violeta Barrios de Chamorros" foundation she directed until February 2021. The authorities reviewed the financial statements from 2015 to 2019.
