Deputy: Chávez's condition has frozen talks on political prisoners
Congressman Edgar Zambrano will continue making an effort to get political prisoners free
"Undoubtedly the situation resulting from the serious health condition of the Venezuelan president has partly frozen the outcome of the proposal made by the Executive Office to hold talks," Zambrano told news TV channel Globovisión during an interview.
Precisely for this reason, he is pursuing meetings with other government authorities, including the president of the Supreme Tribunal of Justice (TSJ) Luisa Estella Morales; People's Ombudsman Gabriela Ramírez and Attorney General Luisa Ortega Díaz, in order to hand the reports over to them and get a decision.
Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of Brazil on March 13 to demand the ouster of embattled President Dilma Rousseff, carrying banners expressing anger at bribery scandals and economic woes. A banner read "We don't want a new Venezuela in Brazil."
