Carlos Chamorro

Nicaraguan journalist in exile

Carlos Fernando Chamorro is a renowned Nicaraguan journalist. He is a member of the Gabo Foundation Board, as well as the founder of the online newspaper Confidencial and the Esta Semana TV magazine. His journalistic work, which began in 1978, challenged both the dictatorships of Anastasio Somoza and Daniel Ortega and earned him numerous awards, including the Maria Moors Cabot Prize from Columbia University in 2010, and the prestigious Ortega and Gasset Prize from El País in 2021. In recent years, his investigative work exposing widespread corruption and human rights violations in Nicaragua has drawn the ire of dictator Daniel Ortega. In 2021, he was forced to leave the country and seek refuge in Costa Rica after the regime’s police raided his newsroom and his home, issuing an arrest warrant for him on trumped-up charges of “money laundering.”
