Request for trial for Marco Cappato

 A Milan prosecutor has requested a trial for the right-to-die activist Marco Cappato, for helping DJ Fabo make his journey to Switzerland to die with dignity.



Earlier, Milan prosecutors stated that assisted suicide does not violate the right to life. They requested archiving and dropping the case. See the earlier news-item here.


A preliminary investigations judge rejected this and told them to press for an indictment. Cappato stated that he wants to be prosecuted, in order to get the chance to put an unjust law on trial. In this way he can defend himself.
