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.
The grievance of guest blogger Gagged Dad, the anti-abortion and lawfully homophobic author of
Two year-old’s contact stopped with homophobic dad
is mentioned in all these posts. After a court case in the UK that lasted more than four years, Gagged Dad’s grievance became expressed as an application to the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR). The full 267 pages of the ECtHR application are published here.
The all-important initial 42 pages of ECtHR application, outlining the facts and putting the legal arguments, are here.
STOP PRESS 14/4/18: THE APPLICATION WENT AHEAD TODAY, BUT IT WAS NOT SUCCESSFUL. I HAVE ORDERED A TRANSCRIPT.
THANKS TO ALL WHO SENT KIND MESSAGES TODAY AND YESTERDAY EVENING.
I STILL INTEND TO PRESS AHEAD WITH JUDICIAL REVIEW, AGAINST THE CORONER. TODAY’S FAILURE TO GET AN INJUNCTION, WHICH WAS ALWAYS AN OPTIMISTIC HOPE, DOES NOT WEAKEN THE FUTURE JUDICIAL REVIEW CASE. THE JUDICIAL REVIEW CASE IS MORE IMPORTANT ANYWAY.

The funeral of Alfie Evans is reported to be planned for tomorrow. Having received no reply by 6 o’clock today to my email (copied below) to the lawyers of Alfie’s parents, I have concluded that it will probably be necessary for me to make an urgent application to the court tomorrow, in a bid to prevent the burial or the cremation of Alfie’s body without a prior post mortem examination and toxicology report to determine the cause of Alfie’s death reliably.
I shall be attending at Court 37, at the Royal Courts of Justice, at the start of business, on Monday 14th May 2018. Continue reading
It looks as though I am not going to be able to escape from my duty, which seems now to be to bring another court case before long, this time against the Coroner of Liverpool.
The Learning Summary from the Significant Case Review of murdered toddler Liam Fee, uses the word “mother” twenty times. It does not even use the word “father” once. I couldn’t bear to read it, once I realised that. I really don’t think that any of them wanted to learn anything.
On and off, Gagged Dad and I have blogged on this website about his court case against Cornwall Council, and the facts behind it, for almost four years now. Judgment was at last handed down on 28th April 2017.
The blog posts that tell Gagged Dad’s story-so-far, are all together in one place now. The title of the earliest of those posts in the entire series, which first broke the news story, before it turned into a court case, and which told it simply, and (the High Court has confirmed) truthfully, as near as dammit, was

Parent vetted for political correctness – should the trial be in private?
I would like to thank the 21 who wrote to the judge and the 17 who attended the hearing, of whom four or more, three of them journalists, addressed the court. I would like especially to thank Stephen Green for his coverage before the hearing, in Christian Voice.
