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.
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.
