List of political prisoners and exiles presented to Venezuelan president
Lawyer awaits Hugo Chávez's comments
Malavé said the list would be assessed by Chávez on a case-by-case basis to determine whether they would be released on bail or pardoned.
She reminded that President Chávez raised the possibility of granting procedural benefits to political prisoners and exiles, provided that "a serious" representative of the opposition presented a report.
Malavé remarked that lawyer Hermann Escarrá has already contacted government officials and requested a meeting with the Venezuelan president to address the issue.
José Vicente Rangel clearly said: "We are not conducting negotiations threatened with a gun in the head." He warned behind closed doors in the midst of the social upheaval occurred during the oil strike in 2002 and 2003. Dissenting Timoteo Zambrano answered back that no other option was available: "The thing is that otherwise, you do not negotiate."
