Recent results reported by experiments with relativistic (heavy) ions have raised again the question whether the lifetime of ill is very close to the lifetime of the free A hyperon. An updated careful analysis of all the existing experimental data shows that it is not, contrary to theoretical calculations. A similar conclusion can be drawn for the neighbor H-4(Lambda). A clear cut high precision measurement performed with the straightforward method of time delay spectra is however lacking and it is eagerly needed. The idea of using the (pi(-), K-0) charge-exchange associated production reaction on targets of liquid He-3,He-4 is discussed. A possible realization exploiting a large part of existing facilities at J-PARC is presented. A measurement with a 5% precision seems within reach with a modest effort and in a reasonable amount of time. The same set-up would also serve very well for the measurement of the lifetime of several neutron-rich Lambda-hypernuclei of the p-shell, in particular of B-12(Lambda). More importantly, the Weak Decay partial widths Gamma(pi-), Gamma(p) and Gamma(pi 0) could be simultaneously determined in order to confirm their predicted strong variation with mass number, A, due to nuclear structure effects.
