Assisted suicide hits the road

van.jpgAnother twist in the assisted suicide plot: still unable to rent premises where foreigners could come to die of their own free will, the Zurich-based Dignitas association is now resorting to vehicles. Swiss television has reported at least two recent cases of Germans travelling to Switzerland to end their lives with Dignitas’ help that have passed away in a van and a delivery truck. Local police have since confirmed the deaths. The association was forced to leave a flat it had been renting after neighbours complained about the large number of deaths happening on their doorstep. Other towns and villages have refused to let Dignitas set up shop, forcing it to hit the road.
