In his testimony Előd Tóásó claimed that Irish Michael Dwyer survived the raid.
The raid in the Las Americas hotel in Santa Cruz by a Bolivian swat team lasted only five minutes. There was no gunfight, members of the swat team broke the door on us and started shooting told to the court in tears Tóásó.
When the police operation was over, they pulled my T-shirt over my head, and put me in a vehicle. I was driven to the airport and police made me kneel in the airport tarmac. Looking through my shirt I saw Michel Dwyer was kneeling right next to me. When police noticed that I could see they dragged me away and I was beaten up. Then, I heard gunshots, and I've never seen Dwyer again. Tóásó's testimony was confirmed by his fellow co-defendant Mario Tadic as well.
