As you know Not Dead Yet UK (NDYUK) campaigns against any change to the law on assisted suicide. We believe that allowing assisted suicide would put terminally ill and disabled people at significant risk.
NDYUK is currently directly involved in challenging legal appeals being brought by Noel Conway and Omid T at the High Court. http://bit.ly/2I2X4gF Both appeals are being supported by Dignity in Dying and their objective is to change the law in order to legalise assisted suicide.
Our legal team is led by Catherine Casserly, a barrister at Cloisters Chambers and solicitor Chris Fry from Fry Law. They are providing their time and expertise free of charge (“pro-bono”). Without their extraordinary generosity, NDYUK simply would not be heard in these appeals at the High Court.
Despite our legal team working for free we have and will continue to incur significant costs, such as Court Fees, which the appeals will require us to pay NDYUK has very little money so we are launching an appeal for financial support on the CrowdJustice website This will go live at 8:00am on Monday 26th March.
