THE father of seriously ill Ashya King told reporters in Malaga this afternoon that he feared being arrested again as he arrived to see his son for the first time in four days.
The Southampton businessman, who lived in Spain for a number of years, had driven two hours from Sevilla following a press conference.
Looking frail and tired, Brett King confirmed that his son was still technically a ward of court, and he was unsure if he would be allowed to see him.
He arrived at 2:45pm, in a white shirt and carrying a bag, on his own in a people carrier at the Materno Infantil Hospital.
There were around 50 journalists and photographers hoping to speak to him. However he rushed straight in to see his son after saying:
“I’ve come to see him but they won’t let me see him.
“What the Prime Minister of England and Health Minister said hasn’t worked because me and my wife haven’t got custody.
“Portsmouth Council have made him a ward of court. They’ve taken custody away. Yesterday they served papers on me. They won’t allow me to see him. If I try and see him, they will arrest me.”
