Diane James, UKIP's Home Affairs and Justice spokesman writes:
It could be an episode of US medical drama Grey’s Anatomy. The tragic tale of a young child, terminally ill with a brain tumour, taken from hospital by parents who flee overseas to try to find treatment for their little boy. But behind the twists and turns of this extremely sad story lies an insidious threat to the UK Criminal Justice System. For now we see two dedicated parents, who simply due to acting against perceived medical advice, have been arrested and face an extradition hearing while their sick son lies alone during these crucial days in a foreign hospital.
When asked, many parents would say they would do anything for their children. This particular case poses many questions, from the sort of treatments available in British hospitals, to the reach of the law over the guardianship of parents, the reluctance of hospitals to seek Care Orders, and finally to the judgement of the police who have chased these parents across Europe like criminals of the highest order. It’s on the latter that I wish to focus. The implications of such police judgement, through the lens of a system where the ability to arrest and hold in prison, without significant evidence, now stretches across twenty eight countries.
