The Venezuelan Government rejects amnesty for prisoners
The proposed amnesty for those arrested during protests against the government and the so called political prisoners, sharpened the differences between the government and the opposition in Venezuela, at the dialogue table which seeks to find a solution to the conflict, said the opposition representation.
The opposition insisted on its proposal of an amnesty for those arrested during the protests, including the leader Leopoldo López, who is jailed and indicted on charges of violence instigation.
The spokesman of the opposition alliance Democratic Unity Table (MUD), Ramon Guillermo Aveledo, admitted that “for now” the proposal of an amnesty was not accepted, but pointed out that the opposition will insist upon it in the coming meetings.
“The Amnesty Law has not been accepted for now. We’ll seek other ways to address these issues that are very important for us and for all the country,” he said.
