|Title:||Acid Attacks, Murder and Suicide: The Legal Complexities of the 'Cause' of Death in Euthanasia|
|Keywords:||acid attack, murder, suicide, euthanasia, causation|
|Abstract:||To secure a murder conviction in the UK the chain of causation in UK criminal law must be unbroken between an accused's action and a victim's suicide. This piece explores the consequences of a violent acid attack and due to the subsequent disability a man's choice to have euthanasia in Belgium. At the UK trial it was the UK's understanding of assisted dying that really seemed to be on trial, more than the attacker's action.|
