The European Court of Human Rights has ruled against the lawsuit of a terminally ill Hungarian, who’s seeking the right to die. Daniel Karsai has an incurable disease of the central nervous system. He sued his government last year. But the court found Hungary’s ban on euthanasia didn’t breach the European Convention on human rights. DW met Daniel ahead of today’s verdict.
