Alfie’s inquest?

The claim I promised to make against the Senior Coroner for Liverpool, seeking judicial review of his decision not to hold an investigation into the death of Alfie Evans, was filed at the Royal Courts of Justice today, 27th April 2018.

In a nutshell, my case is that the public is entitled to an inquest into the death of Alfie, because the public does not know what killed Alfie.  However, the cause of death is likely to have been the unknown illness that was said to have destroyed a large proportion of his brain.  In any event, Alfie died whilst he was subject to a best-interests child euthanasia order of the courts, requiring Alfie to be retained by the hospital until he died, contrary to the wishes of his parents.

(In a nutsell, that’s it.  Mind you, the court papers are a bit more long-winded than that.)

The papers I sent to the court can be read here.

Please note: This is not a legal action is not to get Alfie’s body exhumed.  It is only an attempt to get the coroner to open an official investigation. (As he should have.)  Do not believe the misinformation campaign, making out that I am trying to get Alfie’s body dug up.  Check the truth, by reading the court papers.

Please sign my petition to the coroner, asking him please not to fight me, but instead to change his mind, and to hold an inquest for Alfie after all.

Please help to gain publicity for this cause.  Use your initiative to make it “go viral”.

    Thank you so much for keeping up the fight for this precious baby boy,when so many others just forgot about him-you’re still here..You’re giving me hope again that there are good people on this earth. Justice for Alfie!

  2. In your Judicial Review bundle, you’ve mentioned “The Article 10 right of the claimant, in common with other members of the public wishing to do so, to receive and to impart such information as ought to become public as a result of an obligatory inquest (possible an “Article 2 inquest”) into the death of the deceased Alfie Evans”
    I think this only applies to inquests that have already taken place the results of which the coroner hasn’ t published.

  3. state custody has already been ruled not to apply to healthcare in a european courtroom too

  4. they wouldn’t allow me to make a protective costs order as a litigant in person over a Judicial Review into the Liverpool Care Pathway in 2008 – is that worth a judicial review in itself?

    THANK YOU so much for keeping up with the fight. Alfie Evans deserve for us to honor his memory by trying to find out why The hospital fought so hard to kill him. Alfie Evans would have lived if the hospital wouldn’t have killled him.

    • I think it is right that an inquest should be held, to get to the bottom of this, in public. I do not, cannot, and must not say that I believe that Alfie was killed unlawfully. I have no knowledge of any evidence of that. That is a matter for the coroner’s jury to decide.
