Documentary on death of Co Tipp man

290

A documentary will be aired tonight on the circumstances surrounding the death of county Tipperary Man, Michael Dwyer.

Mr Dwyer was shot dead in Santa Crux by the Bolivian state police in April 2009.

The circumstances surrounding Mr Dwyer's death and the deaths of two other men have been disputed since this happened.

The Bolivian authorities claimed that  Mr Dwyer was involved in a plot to assassinate Bolivian President Evo Morales.

Mr. Dwyer's family deny this.

Tonight's documentary which will be aired on AL Jazeera at 10pm (April 3rd)  is believed to raise questions about the knowledge the state had about the group Mr Dwyer was allegedly involved with,  and calls into question the state's assertion that the group had intended to kill the Bolivian President.
