Welcome to the Hotel Dignitas - You can check in but you'll never leave !

Swiss Police are investigating how British Honeymooning Couple, Matt & Martina Bleasby (En-route to the exclusive resort of Gstaad) were instead taken to the Dignitas Clinic near Zurich and Euthanasied!

Patrick Bettler, Chief of Police for Zurich Airport explained that a small translation error was to blame.

"It was a tragedy caused by a comedy of errors", claimed the stern Swiss law enforcer.

Herr Bettler, went on to explain that a junior customs official with a poor grasp of English had misunderstood "We're a pair of incurable romantics" and want to get to the "Dignity Wellness Centre & Spa" as quickly as possible!

"The official had arranged transport and made sure that the Bleasby's got to their destination in record time which was well meant albeit fatal".

"It's the thought that counts isn't it?,explained Herr Bettler desperately trying to draw a line under the sad affair.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
