…And A Nurse

Another case from the past has been resumed. A nurse who was imprisoned for three months in 2000, with her parents, after having given a lethal injection to an aunt suffering from a liver disease has recently been told by her lawyer that the case is to be referred to the courts where she will be accused of manslaughter. This will be the first time a case involving medical practice and an ethical problem concerning euthanasia will go before a jury.
