Language pair:

Subject:

General

Level of diffculty:

Easy / medium

Word or term in question:

no se daban punto de reposo

Context:

Los sabuesos del Gobierno no se daban punto de reposo, y la prensa gubernamental ya no se limitaba a hurgar en las riquezas de los caudillos 'balancistas', sino que anticipaba la substanciación de algunos graves cargos contra los mismos, en relación con la posesión de dichas riquezas. La incogníta, sin embargo, de los culpables se mantenía en el aire, probablemente en espera del momento psicológico.

Does it mean something like "didn't let up at all?"

Thanks

 

 

Correct - did not let up for one moment

My comment:

Literally - gave themselves no breathing space or no resting point, good answer on your part well done
