The Nicaraguan Institute of Telecommunications and Post Office (TELCOR) argued that the decision to cut off CNN’s cable signal was made because the network’s programming “contravenes, violates, and harms the legal norms” in Nicaragua, Articulo66 reported.
“In a statement, the state entity says that “in its capacity as a decentralized entity of the State of Nicaragua, in compliance with its functions and powers conferred by the Law (…), it is obliged to ensure the protection, defense, and preservation of the principles, rights and guarantees established in our Political Constitution and other laws on the matter,” the outlet added.
