On 16 June, the UK's Human Rights Ambassador, Rita French, delivered a statement on behalf of the UK at the UN Human Rights Council, during the Interactive Dialogue on the High Commissioner's report on Nicaragua. Nicaragua publicly rejected the report. We continue to raise the issue on the deteriorating human rights situation regularly with Nicaraguan Government representatives in London, in Managua, at multilateral fora and publicly, including expressing concern about the harassment of the Church and its representatives.
