“I do not need to live any longer” – patient who wants introduction of euthanasia in Malta

Joe Xerri has been residing at Dar Bjorn since it opened in November, two years ago.

Despite the great assistance given to him as ALS limits his movements, he says that euthanasia should be introduced in Malta so that he will not suffer any longer and watch his health deteriorating.

If euthanasia is not introduced in Malta, he is ready to travel abroad however he cannot leave alone and needs someone to accompany him.

According to Maltese law, it is a crime to assist someone to commit euthanasia, while someone caught assisting another person to end his life, may be imprisoned up to twelve years.

Watch Joe’s story which was transmitted on Insights programme on Sunday evening.
