Nitschke inquiry: AMA slams AHPRA inquest

AHPRA, acting on a single complaint from anti-euthanasia campaigner Paul Russell, has told Dr Nitschke he “may not be a fit and proper person to hold registration as a medical practitioner” because of his pro-euthanasia activities.

The association threw its support behind Dr Nitschke last week after he revealed his regular indemnity provider, Medical Insurance Group Australia (MIGA), would not fund his defence
