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.
Around 1.5 million Venezuelans have decided to emigrate in search of a better future for their families. The figure accounts to between 4% and 6% of the overall population. Approximately 88% of these expatriates have made up their mind to emigrate over the last 15 years.
