Court of Appeal judges have rejected an bid by the parents of terminally ill toddler Alfie Evans to overturn a decision over who has control of his life support.
The parents of a 23-month-old boy at the centre of a life-support treatment battle have lost their latest legal battle to have their child treated overseas.
His parents, Tom Evans and Kate James, have lost legal cases over their son in the High Court, Court of Appeal, Supreme Court and European Court of Human Rights.
A High Court judge, Mr Justice Hayden, began overseeing the case on 19 December previous year.
The legal battle between Alfie Evans' parents and doctors comes as Alder Hey, one of only four specialist children's hospitals in England, was found to have failed four in five standard checks during an unannounced inspection, The Guardian reported Saturday.
But judges again ruled in favour of Alder Hey Children's Hospital, where Alfie is receiving treatment for an undiagnosed degenerative brain disease.
Tom and Kate sought to have Alfie transferred to the Vatican's Bambino Gesu Pediatric Hospital in Rome, which has offered to treat him.
"Their views and rights do not take precedence and do not give them the choice to make the decisions regarding Alfie", he stated.
The hearing resumed on 1 February at the High Court in Liverpool, in which lawyers acting for the hospital claimed further treatment for Alfie was futile and inhumane.
"The bad reality was that nearly the entirety of Alfie's brain has been eroded, leaving only water and cerebral spinal fluid", Moylan said, reading from Hayden's previous decision, according to The Sun. "In our view the arguments advanced on behalf of the parents provide no basis on which Alfie could be said to be detained, or on which he could to be said to be unlawfully detained", Moylan said, according to Liverpool Echo.
However, Alder Hey said in a statement: "Noise from recent protests has unfortunately affected our patients so we would ask that noise levels outside the hospital are kept to a minimum and, for example, auto horns are not sounded".
Justice Moylan denied permission to appeal to the Supreme Court. Courts have refused to allow the parents to determine what is in Alfie's best interest. Supporters have since demonstrated outside the hospital and bosses have pleaded with those assembled not to disturb staff or patients.
