Fresh complaint by family of man shot in Bolivia

THE family of an Irishman shot dead in Bolivia over an alleged assassination plot are considering making fresh complaints to United Nations' investigators over the killing.

Security worker Michael Dwyer (24) from Co Tipperary, was reported to have been gunned down in a police shoot-out after getting mixed up in a right-wing attempt to kill the country's president Evo Morales.

But after new eyewitness testimony from a Hungarian who was with Mr Dwyer in the run-up to his death, the family are looking at making new submissions to both the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights and the UN Special Rapporteur on Ex-judicial Killings.
