The case against euthanasia rights activist 57-year-old Sean Davison who is facing murder charges for allegedly helping 2 people end their lives in 2013 and 2015 has been postponed until 29 April.
The University of Western Cape professor helped his terminally ill mother to euthanize 9 years ago in New Zealand. He was put under house arrest for five months following the death of his mother.
In September 2018, Davison was arrested in connection with the death of his friend Anrich Burger who was a quadriplegic.
It is the state’s case that Davison administered a lethal dose of drugs to Burger in Granger Bay in 2013.
His second murder charge is related to the death of Justin Varian in Fresnaye in July 2015. Davison allegedly placed a bag over Justin’s head and administered helium in order to suffocate him.
Davison appeared in the Cape Town Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
