Wrongful Death Lawsuit Against Ex Bolivian President Proceeds

Posted in Wrongful Death at 3:23 pm by kevin

There is a wrongful death lawsuit against ex-Bolivian president Gonzalo Sanchez de Lozada that has been consolidated this week in Maryland. Also implicated in the case brought forth by 10 Bolivians living in the U. S. is ex-defense minister Jose Carlos Sanchez Berzain.

Both ex-President and ex-defense minister fled to the United States seeking asylum. The plaintiffs’ lawyers are claiming that in 2003, the defendants took inappropriate governmental action that resulted in the killing of 67 Bolivians and that the defendants put themselves under the jurisdiction of U. S. law by fleeing to this country.
