Nitschke court bid

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

A COURT will rule on eu­thana­sia cam­paigner Philip Nitschke’s on­go­ing fight to over­turn his sus­pen­sion by the Med­i­cal Board of Aus­tralia. The board ac­cused Dr Nitschke of tac­itly ap­prov­ing the sui­cide of Perth man Nigel Bray­ley, 45, who killed him­self in May last year while un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion for his in­volve­ment in his wife’s mur­der and the dis­ap­pear­ance of a for­mer girl­friend. The doc­tor’s sus­pen­sion was up­held by the Health Pro­fes­sional Re­view Tri­bunal but the North­ern Ter­ri­tory Supreme Court will rule to­day whether that was ap­pro­pri­ate.

Philip Nitschke.
