U.S. to Nicaragua: Free More

November 23, 1987|Reuters

WASHINGTON — The White House said today that Nicaragua's release of 985 prisoners as part of its pledge to comply with a regional peace accord does not go far enough.

Spokesman Marlin Fitzwater said the release on Sunday (Story, Page 6) "doesn't go far enough in terms of the 9,000 prisoners who still remain there." He said the peace plan adopted in Guatamala in August called for a broad amnesty such as had been issued in El Salvador by President Jose Napoleon Duarte.
