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.
