A Dublin woman charged with attempting to assist the suicide of another woman by making arrangements for her to travel to Zurich has been found not guilty.
 
After deliberating for just over seven hours since yesterday, the jury of six men and six women delivered the verdict this afternoon. 
 
Gail O’Rorke was last week acquitted on direction of the trial judge on two other charges of assisting the suicide of her friend Bernadette Forde.

He thanked the jury for their service and said “justice has been done
