Constantino Romel Frech

HRD, Vice President
Wangki Twi-Tasba Raya Territory

Constantino Romel Frech is an indigenous leader and vice-president of the indigenous territory of Wangki Twi-Tasba Raya on the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua.


Land disputes in Nicaragua, largely ignored by the authoritarian government, have led to precarious situations for indigenous communities and those who defend them. In many cases, the companies who carry out violations against human rights defenders and communities are working in collaboration with police forces and even the army. HRDs have been attacked, criminalised, imprisoned and even killed.
