Gergely Gulyas, head of the human rights committee of Hungary’s parliament, said at the hearing that Bolivia’s delay of a trial three years after the alleged plot indicated a lack of evidence. Irish MEP Gay Mitchell said that no independent investigation had been conducted into the case.
On April 16, 2009, Bolivia’s special forces cracked down on what was believed to be a terrorist unit in Santa Cruz. Bolivian-Hungarian Eduardo Rozsa-Flores, ethnic Hungarian from Romania Arpad Magyarosi and the Irish Michael Dwyer died in the attack. Toaso was arrested and has been kept in detention under suspicion of an armed uprising and terrorism.
