Parents of Charlie Gard return to London High Court

His parents accused Great Ormond Street of delaying treatment until it was too late, with 31-year-old Ms Yates complaining that the world- renowned children's hospital had "wasted time" in refusing to allow doctors from overseas to treat her son.

Afflicted from birth by a rare genetic condition known as mitochondrial depletion syndrome, Charlie has not had much of a life outside hospital environments in London. His parents and Great Ormond Street Hospital have been in a months-long legal battle over his treatment. They have sought permission from the courts to switch off his life support and allow him to die peacefully.

Earlier this week Charlie's parents gave up their legal fight, saying the baby's condition had deteriorated so far that the window of opportunity to help him had closed.

The case has drawn massive global interest including high-profile statements from President Trump and Pope Francis in support of the family.

A spokeswoman for Great Ormond Street Hospital, where Charlie is being treated, was not immediately able to provide details. The hospital released a statement over the weekend saying some of their staff had received menacing messages, including death threats, in the wake of the case becoming an worldwide story.

The Judge added that hospital bosses suggested a hospice for little Charlie.

This, he said, is the debate on whether the state ought to be "the health care provider of last resort", stepping in as a third party who gets to decide where it's limited resources will be spent.

The heated commentary has prompted the judge to criticize the effects of social media and those "who know nearly nothing about this case but who feel entitled to express opinions".

"Recognise that children do not belong to their parents", said Kennedy.

Under British law, children have rights independent of their parents, and it is usual for courts to intervene when parents and doctors disagree on the treatment of a child - such as cases where a parent's religious beliefs prohibit blood transfusions. But the judge ruled that the hospice's location and the date of transfer would remain private by court order.
