Lawyer Theresly Malavé informed on Friday that a detailed report on the legal status of 36 people considered as political prisoners or exiles was submitted to Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez.

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.
