Cape Town – Right-to-die activist Sean Davison, who has been charged with three murders, appeared briefly in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court on Friday and his case was transferred to the high court.
He will appear in the Western Cape High Court on June 19, News24 reported. The 58-year-old UWC academic heard that his pre-trial would go ahead on June 19 and that an indictment and summary of facts had been drawn up.
Davison insists that he has not committed any offence and is out on R20 000 bail.
The co-founder of Dignity South Africa, which is campaigning for a change in the law, served five months of house arrest in New Zealand after helping his mother to end her life.
He was arrested at his Pinelands home in April last year over the 2013 death of quadriplegic Anrich Burger, who was a friend. Burger, who was unable to consume medication on his own, had been a medical doctor until his accident in 2005.
