Court to decide Charlie Gard's fate next week


The judge is considering new information on the 11-month-old, who was born with a rare genetic disorder called mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome.

Chris Gard and Connie Yates are now battling in the High Court to take their 11-month-old boy - who suffers from a rare genetic condition and has brain damage - to the U.S. for experimental treatment.

Charlie's father, Chris Gard, yelled "Evil!" at Gollop as his mother, Connie Yates, began to cry.

Dr Hirano examined Charlie on Monday and Tuesday. Judge Francis said that results from one scan were not available.

Simpson convinced a Nevada parole board he should be released after spending nine years in prison for a Las Vegas hotel heist. I know he does a lot for other people. "We've taken things from him but he's never willingly paid a penny", Fred said.

The pre-hearing Friday was the latest step in his parents' long legal battle to give Charlie, who suffers from mitochondrial depletion syndrome and can not breathe unaided, an experimental treatment.

Previous courts, including the European Court of Human Rights, have sided with Great Ormond Street Hospital, where Charlie is being treated.

Specialists at Great Ormond Street Hospital caring for Charlie say the therapy will not help and that life support treatment should stop.

Charlie's parents have, however, received support from Pope Francis, U.S. President Donald Trump and some members of the U.S. Congress.

Charlie Gard has made headlines over the past few months as United Kingdom courts denied his parents the right to transfer him to other hospitals for treatment.

Last week, Mr Justice Francis suggested that the American specialist - Michio Hirano, a professor of neurology at Columbia University Medical Centre in NY - should travel to London to meet Great Ormond Street doctors and other clinicians.

A USA doctor who has offered to treat terminally ill Charlie has attended a meeting at Great Ormond Street Hospital to decide whether he should travel to America for therapy.

The judge who is overseeing Charlie's case says there are "lots and lots" of other sick youngsters at the hospital.
