Charlie Gard's parents prepare for fresh legal battle

Charlie Gard's parents prepare for fresh legal battle

The 11-month-old, who is brain-damaged and suffers from a rare genetic condition, has been the subject of a ongoing legal battle.

He added that Great Ormond Street doctors had agreed to keep providing life-support treatment pending the outcome of the latest stage of litigation.

However, Charlie's parents have mounted extensive legal challenges, hoping to overturn the decision and seek further life-saving treatment for their son.

"As a parent and a grandparent, this is so alarming", Graham wrote. If he is denied access to this treatment, the hospital where he is staying would initiate proceedings to remove him from life support resulting in his death.

He said the plan was for a specialist in the United States who was offering therapy to give evidence by a link from the US.

Charlie's parents have already lost battles in the High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court in London.

A USA doctor has also proposed treatment for Gard.

Judge Nicholas Francis, who ruled in favour of doctors in April, says he will consider any new evidence Thursday.

However, Mr Armstrong said today he believed the treatment had been misjudged and rejected the suggestion that Charlie was being "experimented on".

Charlie's family spokesman had said the tot "is being held captive by the British state" in a final plea ahead of the crucial court hearing.

"We are continuing to spend every moment, working around the clock to save our dear baby Charlie", the parents said in a statement before the hearing.

"We've been requesting this specialised treatment since November, and never asked the hospital, courts, or anyone for anything - except for the permission to go".

After a series of court battles, the family have been offered support by US President Donald Trump and the Pope, the latter having sent a tweet offering to help. "If he's still fighting, then we're still fighting".
