News: DPP speaks about assisted suicide guidance on the Today programme

The Director of Public Prosecutions gave an interview to the Today programme this morning on the final guidance on assisted suicide prosecutions which will be released later today. Nearly 5000 responses were received during the consultation period.

The DPP said that in the final guidance “there has been a change of focus, in particular on the factors against prosecution, and we’re  now concentrating very much on the acts and the motives of the suspect, rather than the characteristics . . . of the victim.”

More details are on the BBC News website and in an article by the DPP in today’s Times.
