Cases attracting media attention

The physician who applied terminal sedation (giving sleeping drugs and morphine in “normal” doses) to a terminally ill patient was acquitted by both the courts and the medical disciplinary tribunal; after that both the Prosecution Office and the Health Inspectorate went to appeal. He has now been again acquitted by the Court of Appeal. In its verdict the court explicitly stated that there had not been any proof of a causal connection between the medication and the death of the patient. Now the doctor awaits only the result of the appeal to the medical tribunal, due in December.
