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.
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.
