Rome, February 15 - Right-to-die activist Marco
Cappato is hoping the Constitutional Court will rule in his
favour when it hears the case of his helping 40-year-old blind
and tetraplegic Italian ex-DJ Fabiano Antoniani, better known as
Dj Fabo, commit assisted suicide in Switzerland last year.
Cappato sdaid Thursday he hoped the top court would strike down
a Fascist-era article in the penal code, Article 580, which
punishes instigation to suicide. "The hope is that the
Constitutional Court will establish that this 1930 norm is
unconstitutional," said Cappato, a Radical Party member and
treasurer of the right-to-die Luca Coscioni association. He said
the norm "does not make any distinction for the suffering of the
person". Cappato added that a new law introducing living wills
was "at risk" of not being implemented because "city councils do
not have or are not furnishing enough information to citizens".
