The police in Chinandega, Nicaragua, are investigating numerous cases of posting of sexually explicit photos of minors on social networks. Police Commissioner Pablo Mendoza said that, in one case, photos of a minor girl that she had sent to her boyfriend were posted by others to social networks.
He asked for the collaboration of the public to discover more victims of this crime which under Law 779, the Law to Prevent Violence against Women, is punishable by between two and four years in prison.

Representatives of universities, the Ministry of Education, and the Nicaraguan Council for Science and Technology condemned the crimes and called on young people to use the internet properly. Gilberto Padilla of the Technological Institute for Internet Studies said that his organization would be visiting public and private schools to educate students and teachers. He added that, “Parents must control the use of the internet and of the cell phones of their adolescent children.” (El Nuevo Diario, Feb. 23, 24, 25)
