This is a sad reflection upon the Swiss, they simply cannot imagine anyone helping a fellow human being without some perceived benefit.

As mentioned earlier, I called the police to report a suicide.

A depressed friend, who had a social worker, had been seeing a psychiatrist for years, made numerous suicide attempts in the past, and was on record by email and SMS expressing a desire to end his life, specifically by hanging himself, finally did so in my house.

Despite all of the above, I was immediately a suspect, accused of having a double life; they alledged I was a closet homosexual, who was involved in a sado-masochistic sex game gone wrong. This is a sad reflection upon the Swiss, they simply cannot imagine anyone helping a fellow human being without some perceived benefit. Think about that, dear reader, if you have any Swiss friends; consider them to be "fair-weather friends.

So, I called the police, explained the situation, answered all their questions and they basically detained me in my own home for six hours and questioned me without a lawyer. They posted two armed, uniformed police, who blocked the exits to kitchen where I was seated. They specifically stated I was not to go to the bathroom or drink any water and the guards were there to inforce this.

They specifically stated I was not to go to the bathroom or drink any water and the guards were there to inforce this.

The police continually demanded I must do such and such thing, and when I simply stated that I did not believe that by law I was obliged to, they replied "It will be better for you if you do".

I was repeatedly denied my lawyer, consular access and an interpreter. These things are guaranteed by law, supposedly, but to the Swiss police, they are an impediment to a good "forcing".

Forcing is the word the Swiss police use to refer to torture and enhanced interrogation techniques such as waterboarding, because torture is such an ugly word. For the evil Swiss, euphamisms are key.

The most heavily ironic part of my ordeal in my own home was the public prosecutor coming to see me, announcing he was signing an order for my immediate incarceration, and that he was opening an investigation because "we must respect the deceased and determine the cause of his death". I asked about my rights, about respecting the rights of the living; I received no reply.

I asked about my rights, about respecting the rights of the living; I received no reply.

Now, please bear in mind that at this point, the coroner has been to examine the deceased, the time of death has been determined, they have intervewed me for hours, and interviewed my partner for over half an hour. She categorically stated that I was with her for 12 hours either side of their estimated time of death; but instead of ruling me out they decided that maybe they could torture me until I confessed.

To date there has been absolutely no proof in any way shape or form of my involvement in the death of the deceased. Yet here they are denying me all my rights and threatening physical violence.
