Dignitas, who has Ludwig Minelli at the helm, is petitioning the Swiss Supreme court to permit modifications in the law. Minelli said: "The question for politicians in Britain today is why do you force your citizens, people in the most terrible circumstances who are determined to end their suffering in a way of their own choosing, to leave their country and travel to Switzerland to exercise their free will."
Dignitas has been enjoying a walk through in Switzerland, primarily because Switzerland has not come down heavily on assisted suicide. The euthanasia laws are clear that a person can be accused only if the act is motivated by self-interest.
Dignitas is now helping a Swiss national suffering bipolar disorder. MEP Chris Davies expressed that it would certainly benefit if UK could take a leaf out of the Dutch books, and reconsider their laws on assisted suicide.
