Opposition Deputy Edgar Zambrano informed that he would appear at the headquarters of the Organization of American States (OAS) in Caracas to submit a comprehensive dossier including the list of Venezuelan political prisoners and exiles, in order to request support for his initiative seeking their humanitarian release.

"We must exhaust every possible means," Zambrano stated, adding that he would also submit the dossier to the Council of National Academies on Wednesday and the Venezuelan Red Cross on Friday, in an attempt to gain support in favor of amnesty.

"We are compelled to keep the Venezuelan people informed about each one of the actions taken to prevent this initiative from waning, and we must remember everyday that we have a group of exiles and political prisoners going through hard times," he stressed.

Zambrano added that Vice-President Nicolás Maduro halted the negotiations that began last November because he is an impending presidential candidate, and the talks do not yield political dividends.
