Berlin: Germany`s Federal Court of Justice on Friday overturned the conviction of a lawyer who advised an elderly comatose woman`s family to cut off her feeding tube, in a landmark ruling on euthanasia. The high-profile case involved 71-year-old Erika Kuellmer who slipped into a vegetative state after a cerebral haemorrhage in October 2002 and, confined to a nursing home, was fed through a tube for five years.
"Only clearly formulated living wills can be respected," Sonja Hecker of the German Association for Provision and Care Rights advised, to spare dying patients and their loved ones battles in court. Bureau Report
