The minister of health, Svatopluk Němeček, says he is not in favour of euthanasia. Speaking on a Czech Television discussion show on Sunday the Social Democrat said that human life was sacred. His comments came two days after police charged a former nurse with murder following the death of a patient at a hospital in Rumburk, North Bohemia from a suspected overdose of potassium. Police suspect the nurse of euthanising the 70-year-old cancer patient out of sympathy for the woman’s critical condition.
