Investigator claims Bolivian investigation into Co Tipperary man’s death is flawed


The mother of Michael Dwyer who was shot dead by Bolivian authorities in 2009 is travelling to Brazil to meet an investigator who claims that the Bolivian investigation into the Co Tipperary man’s death is flawed. 

It is reported today that Marcelo Sozo, who was the former Public Prosecutor in charge of investigating the case for a number of years claims that officials misrepresented the nature of the police raid which led to the shooting dead of Mr Dwyer. 

The Bolivian government claims the Balinderry man was in the country as part of a terrorist group that planned to assasinate the country’s president Evo Morales.

However, Mr Soza says that he is ready to testify to European Officials about what he knows in relation to the case.
