Mercy death doc pursued
DUTCH authorities are prosecuting a doctor for performing euthanasia on a patient.
The decision was taken after a regional review board found she had “overstepped the mark” in killing the 74-year-old Alzheimer’s patient.
Prosecutors allege the woman’s will was “unclear and contradictory” when it came to her final wishes.
The doctor, who has not been named, says she acted cautiously.
