Marco Cappato, treasurer of the Luca Coscioni Association, Cinzia Fornero, a volunteer of the Soccorso Civile association, and Paolo Botto, brother of the 74-year-old professor Margherita, a cancer patient who died yesterday morning in Switzerland, have been entered in the register of suspects of the Milan prosecutor's office for aiding suicide.
The investigation concerns the assisted death of the teacher in a clinic in Zurich where she was accompanied by her brother and Cinzia Fornero. Cappato is the president of the association that organized the trip. The three self-reported this morning.
Yesterday's incident is the fourth for which an investigation has been opened in Milan. It is coordinated by the prosecutor Luga Gaglio and the deputy Tiziana Siciliano, the same magistrates who coordinated the investigation concerning Elena Altamira, a 69-year-old from Veneto terminally ill with cancer, and Romano, 82, a former advertising journalist, relegated to a bed by a severe form of Parkinson's, both accompanied to the 'Dignitas' clinic in Zurich.
For this second case, the Public Prosecutor's Office, with a more extensive "interpretation" of the now well-known 2019 Constitutional Court ruling on the DJ Fabo affair, asked the investigating judge Sara Cipolla to dismiss the case, deeming "not punishable" as an aid to suicideeven those cases in which the fact that the patient is attached to machines to survive is lacking as a prerequisite.
