The only reason why Dr. Simoncini has been struck off from the medical order is because he as an oncologist administrated Sodium Bicarbonate instead of the conventional chemo in the treatment of cancer patients. His lawyers have started a rehabilitation court trial at the international Court of Justice in Strassburg
Law of 8 April 1998, No. 94
“Conversion into law, with amendments, of the Decree Law of 17 February 1998, No. 23, concerning urgent provisions relating to clinical trials in the field of oncology and other measures relating to health”
Compliance with authorised therapeutic indications
1. Except as provided in paragraphs 2 and 3, the physician, in prescribing a medicinal specialty or other industrial medicinal product, shall comply with the therapeutic indications, the ways and means of administration provided by the marketing authorisation issued by the Ministry of Health.
2. In individual cases, the physician may, under his direct responsibility and after informing the patient and acquiring their consent, use an industrial medicinal product for an indication or a way of administration or a means of administration or use different from that authorised, where recognised for the purposes of the application of Article 1(4) of the Decree Law of 21 October 1996, No. 536, converted by the Law of 23 December 1996, No. 648, where the physician considers, on the basis of documentable data, that the patient cannot usefully be treated with medicinal products for which that therapeutic indication or way or means of administration has already been approved and provided this use is known and is consistent with works that have appeared in accredited scientific publications in the international field.
This law, now promulgated by Minister Bindi because of the known events of the DiBella cure, does in fact allow sodium bicarbonate to be used to treat cancer.
“…where the physician considers, on the basis of documentable data, that the patient cannot usefully be treated with medicinal products for which that therapeutic indication or way or means of administration has already been approved and provided this use is known and is consistent with works that have appeared in scientific publications in the international field ”

Also the Court of Cassation…
Notwithstanding the therapeutic freedom of the physician
The Court of Cassation (Sentence No. 301/2001, Section IV, deposited on 25 January 2005) confirms the principle of therapeutic freedom of the physician. According to what is established: it is right to value the autonomy of the physician in therapeutic choices, since the art of medicine – lacking by its very nature mathematically-based scientific protocols – often views various practices and solutions that experience has shown to be effective, to be chosen with a careful evaluation of a number of alternatives that only the physician can assess; this value of freedom in therapeutic choices cannot be repressed, on pain of degrading the physician to a simple bureaucrat; the choice of the physician cannot be rushed or founded on simple personal experience. Once the choice is made, the physician must remain a vigilant observer of the evolution of the situation, so as to be able to take immediate action in case of urgency, where he understands that the choice made was not appropriate; when all that has been carried out, the physician may not be responsible for any failure; the judge, in assessing the correctness of the therapeutic choice made by the physician and the possible lack of skill in his action, must make a judgment “ex ante”, that is mentally placing himself in the time when the physician was called upon to make the choice and also considering its scientific substance.
But then… if a law exists, …if even the Court of Cassation has spoken in favour of the therapeutic freedom of the physician…
why does EVERYONE allow it to be ignored?
And above all…
WHY HAS DR. SIMONCINI BEEN STRUCK OFF?
