THE Crown Prosecution service has sought to withdraw the European Arrest Warrant targeting Ashya King’s parents.

But family court judge Mr Justice Baker said he does not have the power to revoke the European Arrest Warrant, and that they must wait for the next sitting of Spanish court.

Parents Brett and Naghmeh King could be reunited with Ashya as soon as this evening, if an emergency hearing is held.

The NHS Trust, who sought his parents’ arrest, have also now claimed they do not object to Ashya being taken to Prague for proton beam therapy ‘in principle’.

This comes as older brother Naveed, 20, has released a thank you message in a YouTube video (below).

UK Prime Minister has also spoken out about Ashya, telling LBC:  “I obviously, like everyone else in the country, want to see this poor little boy re-united with his parents.”

  1. Now the King’s need to get a good lawyer. They may have a very good case of wrongful arrest. All proceeds can then go to Ashya to assist with his ongoing treatment. The European Arrest Warrant is a total shambles and should never have been used in such a case.

  2. Lou Lou,
    People power only I think. If this god you want to thank is responsible for their release, he could have stepped in a bit earlier and prevented the whole thing.
