Bolivian Escapade ... shooting of Micheal Dwyer

Broadcast on Al Jazeera English tonight at 11.30 'Bolivian Escapade' people and power ... How the mysterious death of a young Irishamn in Bolivia has thrown a light on the murky world of International Security.
In Bolivia, where Dwyer and two others were shot dead in the early hours of Apr 16, the government used the killings to up the ante against its political opponents. In the weeks after the killings, dozens of opponents of socialist president Eva Morales were arrested, and many of them imprisoned. They were largely associated with a movement based around the city of Santa Cruz, which wants to secede from Bolivia over Morales’s policies on natural resources in the area.

According to Dwyer’s mother, Caroline: “Michael was in bed in his underwear, asleep. The police burst in the door with a precise shot to his heart which killed him and while he was dead on the ground they shot him four more times in the back.” The film also interviews the hotel manager who disputes an official claim that Rozsa’s car was used in a bomb attack on a cardinal’s home the previous evening.


Rozsa and another man were also killed in the hotel room. Their final two associates were arrested, and are currently stuck in a legal process in which their trial has been halted because the prosecutor is accused of extortion.

Meanwhile, Christof Heyns, the UN’s special rapporteur on extrajudicial killings, has repeatedly written to the Bolivian government looking forexplanations. In the latest missive, the rapporteur laid out again the pathological evidence of the shootings: “Without implying, in advance, any conclusions on the information received, I wish to reiterate my concern expressed in the previous communication sent on 19 Aug 2011 for the attention of the Government of Your Excellency, concerning allegations that the gunshot wounds observed in the body of Mr Dwyer indicate that several shots were fired while the deceased was already disabled.”

Some of them countries in south america would take ya outside and shoot ya for looking at them sideways. A lot of Nazis escaped there in 1945 and taught em the finer points and not so finer points of torturing prisoners...Pinochet etc

Yeah i know about Pizarro and Cortez etc, but the point i was making was that the Nazis through the Gestapo had become experts at finding peoples breaking point in much more subtle ways so they could release them without a mark on em i suppose

Re: Bolivian Escapade ... shooting of Micheal Dwyer

I knew Mike personally and worked with him.

Last time i seen him was penneys carpark ballina , we organised a drink when he was suppose to return!!

The work was dangerous but he knew right from wrong.

He was shot by a paranoid cops taken orders from an even more paranoid suit.

Hope they sort whoever was involved.

RIP Mike

Re: Bolivian Escapade ... shooting of Micheal Dwyer

I worked with mike doing the door work in Galway, always a good laugh and a gent. He was
shot with he's hands up and no weapons in the room.

Last I knew he was working for the security company that looks after the shell gas projects in mayo. - I-R-M-S security. from what ive been told they are involved with some very shady overseas shit too.
The lads that Mike were with were rough enough heads - one of them had also worked for the same security company.

something not right somewhere in both sides with what went on.

RIP Mike...
