The court order allowing advocate Robin Stransham-Ford to ask a doctor to help him end his life, and also declaring that the doctor who did so would not be acting illegally, will not be rescinded, even though he died two hours before the order was granted. This is according to Judge Hans Fabricius who turned down an application by the Justice and Health Ministers, the National Director of Public Prosecution and the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) to rescind the order he granted on 30 April.
