Doctor on trial in landmark euthanasia case in Netherlands

A Dutch doctor has been produced in court after performing euthanasia on a patient suffering with severe dementia. Prosecutors say the doctor did not do enough to verify consent. The patient, 74, was suffering from Alzheimer’s when she died in 2016. The doctor allegedly sedated the woman and asked her family to hold her down as she administered a lethal drug.
