St. Helier, Jersey, Mar 12, 2021 / 17:01 pm
Jersey has formed a citizens' jury to determine whether assisted suicide should be allowed on the island.
Out of 477 people who applied to sit on the jury, 23 were "randomly selected to provide a broadly representative sample of the Island', Channel 103 reported the government as saying.
An expert advisory team to the group includes several university professors from mainland universities such as Oxford and the University of Bristol.
The jury will meet virtually ten times over two months, starting March 18, to hear evidence and consider and debate the legal, ethical, and medical implications of legalizing assisted suicide.
