Metro reported that Alfie Evans’ father, Tom Evans, has sought to prosecute doctors for conspiracy to murder.

This was revealed by the judge presiding over the Alfie Evans hearing to the Court of Appeal. Tom plans to have three doctors charged with conspiracy to murder in the case of his late son

Tom’s lawyer told the court, “He is a desperate man clutching at straws.”

Alfie was at the center of a legal dispute with regard to his life-support treatment. Three Court of Appeal judges analyzed Alfie’s treatment at a hearing in London.

Both the parents, Tom Evans and Kate James, appealed after a ruling made by a High Court judge on April 24. Justice Hayden decided that the young one should not be allowed to leave Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool.

An air ambulance was on standby to take Alfie to a hospital in Rome, at the ‘request of the Pope.’

Tom and Kate, both in their early 20’s, are being represented in court by separate legal teams. The council representing Alfie’s mother said that he was ‘struggling.’

Lady Justice King, an appeal judge, said that there was an acceptance that the little boy was dying.

Tom’s legal team said that though they did not challenge the medical report, ‘it is another thing to say that your life is futile because your quality of life is not deemed sufficient.’

The hospital’s doctors and staff members said they faced severe criticism from some of the supporters and this made it impossible for the little boy to be transported back to his home.

Paul Diamond, Tom’s lawyer, countered the claim saying there was no ‘hostility’ against the NHS, though there were tensions.

Doctors stopped providing life-support treatment to Alfie late on April 23. But the toddler had continued to breathe, much to the surprise of the specialists.

The parents lost two rounds of fights in the High Court, Court of Appeal, Supreme Court, and European Court of Human Rights.
