Venezuela's opposition Deputy Edgar Zambrano delivered on Wednesday to the Attorney General's office a document concerning the case of political prisoners in Venezuela so as to speed up the process for amnesty request.

Zambrano explained that the step was part of the required actions for government authorities.

When asked about the lawfulness of granting amnesty by Venezuelan President Hugo from Cuba, the opposition leader said replied Human Rights "have no boundaries."
