SUMMARY
-------

1. In December 2009, the Government of Nicaragua (GON) did not
report the resolution of any Embassy registered property claims.
To date, the overwhelming majority of resolutions have involved
compensation via government-issued indemnification bonds ("bonos de
pago de indemnizacion" or BPIs). As of November 30, 2009, the GON
had issued BPIs with a face value of $363,641,210 to
Embassy-registered claimants. Since taking office in January 2007,
the Ortega administration has resolved 137 claims, 42 of which
during the 2009-2010 waiver year.

NO EMBASSY REGISTERED CLAIMS RESOLVED IN DECEMBER

2. The GON did not report the resolution of any U.S. citizen claims
registered with the Embassy Property Office in December of the
2009-2010 waiver year.
