The brother of 41 year old Marcel, an alcoholic in the Netherlands, has spoken to the BBC about how his brother chose to die and how the euthanasia laws in the Netherlands helped him do so. He was able to legally have someone end his life as part of the Dutch laws on Euthanasia which state it is lawful for people with “unbearable suffering” and no prospect of improvement.
