List of political prisoners and exiles presented to Venezuelan president

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.

Is protest over?

That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending  in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
