About this Speaker

An investigative journalist and editor of the Politics section of the newspaper, La Prensa de Nicaragua, Martínez stands out for his in-depth reporting for which he has received numerous awards. In 2002, he won first place in the Pedro Joaquín Chamorro Award, in the written press category, for a report on the disappearance of five million barrels of crude oil from the controls of the company, Alba de Nicaragua, after the participation of relatives of President Daniel Ortega. Along these lines, in 2011, he was recognized by the Faculty of Humanities and Communication of the Central American University, based in Managua, for an investigation that showed how the company in charge of international airports awarded a contract for $ 1 million to an unknown consortium with phantom partners. The applause resounded again for this investigative journalist, in 2017, this time with international recognition, at the 11th edition of the prestigious Latin American Prize for Investigative Journalism of the Institute of Press and Society (IPYS). The jury awarded him an honorable mention for the investigation that exposed the irregularities in the vaccine plant, Mechnikov, a failed project that received a contribution of $ 14.1 million from the Nicaraguan Social Security fund. Moisés Martínez is part of the network of more than 270 professionals, who received scholarships from the Balboa Program for Young Ibero-American Journalists -Course Iberis- to carry out studies and a professional internship in Madrid, Spain.
