United Kingdom court rules against parents who want son to go to Italy

21 April 2018

Specialists say his brain has been "eroded".

Tom Evans and Kate James were seeking to overturn a court order directing Alder Hey Children's hospital in Liverpool to remove their son's ventilator. It was the Court of Appeal that set Monday, April 23rd, as the date for the removal of Alfie's ventilation.

After losing their latest appeal, Alfie's parents are making a further appeal to the Supreme Court and appeal court judges said Alfie would continue to receive treatment pending the Supreme Court decision.

They lost a first round of cases in the High Court, Court of Appeal, Supreme Court and European Court of Human Rights.

Angels hopeful Ohtani (blister) makes next start
After fouling off a pair of mid-90's fastballs to fall behind, Betts managed to lay off Ohtani's splitter to draw the count full. Ohtani did not come out for a third inning, as the Angels announced he had developed a blister on his pitching hand.

Judges at the supreme court have approved a plan for withdrawing treatment to 23-month-old Alfie Evans, who has an undiagnosed degenerative neurological condition. Doctors at Alder Hey have said life-support treatment should stop because further treatment was futile. He argued that a better system can be found in Texas, where disputes of the discontinuation of treatment are resolved by hospital ethics committees.

But Mr Justice Hayden said flying Alfie to a foreign hospital would be wrong and pointless. Tom and Kate fought the rulings tooth and nail and filed one appeal after another to allow them to seek treatment for Alfie in the Vatican's Bambino Gesu Pediatric Hospital, which had offered to treat Alfie.

The Supreme Court had also dismissed the suggestion that Alfie was either "detained" or "unlawfully detained".

A writ of habeas corpus - Latin for "you may have the body"- is a legal manoeuvre which requires a court to examine the legality of a detention.

Russian Federation sees no need for United Nations inquiry into Syria toxic gas attacks
According to the Pentagon, US intelligence had established that the base was the launchpad for the alleged chemical attack . Moscow denied the charge and blamed delays on retaliatory US-led missile strikes on Syria on Saturday.

The Supreme Court has announced that they will not give the family permission to appeal, according to the Liverpool Echo.

Giving reasons for the decision, the justices said it was a "desperately sad case".

Alfie's parents have done everything in their power to do what they think is best for him even though that is contrary to the views of the doctors. "But it is sad also for the people who have been keeping Alfie alive for so long, the doctors and nurses at Alder Hey hospital".

'As we explained in our earlier decision in this case, the best interests of the child are the "gold standard" which is not only adopted by our law but also reflects the worldwide standards to which this country is committed.
