Former Dutch Prime Minister Dries van Agt and his wife Eugenie have died by double euthanasia. The couple, both 93, had been in fragile health for some time. Van Agt suffered a brain hemorrhage in 2019 and never fully recovered. The Rights Forum, a human rights organization founded by van Agt, announced the double euthanasia. Tributes have been paid to the former prime minister, who served from 1977 to 1982. Van Agt became increasingly progressive after leaving politics and founded The Rights Forum in 2009 to advocate for a just and sustainable policy regarding the Palestine/Israel issue.
