More about:

In Hong Kong, Bun Chai has been struggling to regain control over his life. He was paralysed from the neck down in an accident twenty years ago. After spending more than a decade in a hospital bed, he made a public appeal for the right to die.

In this episode of Global Perspectives, Bun Chai talks candidly about those trying times, the public letter he wrote and making a fresh start.

“In His Own Right” is presented and produced by Caroline Chan for Radio Television Hong Kong.
