Sentenza 14 maggio 2013, n.67810/10
Case of Gross v. Switzerland
Data: 14 maggio 2013
The Court considered that Ms Gross’ wish to be provided with a lethal dose of medication allowing her to end her life fell within the scope of her right to respect for her private life under Article 8. The Court concluded that Swiss law, while providing the possibility of obtaining a lethal dose of a drug on medical prescription, did not provide sufficient guidelines ensuring clarity as to the extent of this right. There had accordingly been a violation of Article 8 of the Convention in that respect.
