Maverick 2: Philip Nitschke
Australian euthanasia activist Dr Philip Nitschke will not be allowed to
promote his cause in Singapore, police have decided. Nitschke had planned to
give a talk there describing the work of his group, Exit International, on May
13. But police say that it would promote what is a criminal offence in
Singapore. Nitschke told the Straits Times that he was "immensely
disappointed" with the decision. He said that 28 Singaporeans intended to come
to the talk and that some of them had already joined his group. ~ Straits
