The federal police office is currently assessing two court cases involving Nieva and his Pueblo Grande Baptist Church, although both have stalled in recent months. The first relates to an attempt on Nieva’s life in October 2014. The second is an appeal for justice relating to his claims that his church has suffered four years of religious persecution at the hands of the local authorities. After months without progress, the church is still awaiting a date for the next court hearing.
