Assisted suiciders arrested

Final_exitFour members of the Final Exit Network were arrested on February 25, 2009 for their role in the assisted suicide of John Celmer in Georgia.  Included among the arrestees were the president and medical director of the Network.

After an eight-month investigation, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation concluded that they violated Georgia law which prohibits helping another person to commit suicide.  It was also asserted that the Network may have played a role in approximately 200 other assisted suicides.
