Russian woman douses Nicaraguan priest with acid
The woman was shouting that the police "would do nothing to her anyway."
A Russian citizen doused a priest with acid in a Nicaraguan church after she had confessed to him, La Prensa says in a report.
The incident occurred on Wednesday, December 5th. A woman named Alice Leonidovna Gonn tossed sulfuric acid at Father Mario Guevara in the cathedral of Managua. He was hospitalized with burns of the eyes, face and body. The parishioners who witnessed the attack provided the priest with first aid - they took off his acid-damaged clothes and took the man to the hospital. They also detained the woman before the police arrived. According to one of the eyewitnesses, the offender behaved as if she was “possessed,” and shouted that the police “would do nothing to her anyway.”
The publication notes that the attack happened three days after Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega accused Catholic priests of participating in an anti-state collusion and helping the protests that swept the country in April 2018.
The public unrest in Nicaragua began after the government proposed increasing employers’ and employees’ deductions to social insurance funds. The protests escalated into riots, which killed more than 350 people.
Redistribution on Ai-Petri plateau: demolition of facilities worth 1 billion, no compensation, and arm of Sberbank
One and a half years after the demolition of Tatar cafes on the Ai-Petri plateau, their owners are trying to sue the promised compensation from the Crimean government, but to no avail: the courts make decisions not in favor of them. They did not get the promised new land for business either. And all because in May 2017 a banal replotting and destruction of a cluster of small and medium-sized businesses was carried out on Ai-Petri. But cafes and retail outlets still function there: also with a national flavor, but different already. The CrimeRussia tried to figure out who and why demolished some joints for the sake of building by others, and how in the near future they plan to use the mountain pearl.
Earlier, it was reported that the head of the Shali district of Chechnya, Turpal-Ali Ibragimov, Ramzan Kadyrov’s cousin, was responsible for the accident with two dead. Now the republican MIA officially declares that Ibragimov’s second cousin was driving.
