The German Justice department wants to exhume the bodies of six Belgians who were patients of ‘cancer healer’ Klaus Ross. They are looking into whether their deaths were caused by treatment he gave them, Mediahuis papers reported on Saturday.
The Justice department wants to look into the deaths of 69 people (63 Dutch and 6 Belgians). They want to find out whether their deaths were caused by anticancer treatment he gave them at his centre in Bracht, Nordrhein-Westfalen. The medication was still experimental.
The self-titled healer hit the news at the start of August, after a Dutch patient died in suspicious circumstances. A little while later, it was revealed that two other patients had died, including a woman from Beveren. The German Justice department has not revealed where the other potential Belgian victims are from. Klaus Ross’ centre was shut on the 4th of August. He has not yet been arrested.
