Belgian Sex Offender Asks For and Gets His Euthanasia
Frank Van Den Bleeken, a Belgian sex offender, will be euthanized, as he has demanded over the years, his lawyer said on Monday. He was incarcerated for several rapes and a murder. But after 30 years behind bars, he claims to be suffering from "unbearable mental pain." After several denied requests, the Belgian court of Appeal has finally approved his demand.
