Police question parents of baby on life-support


The parents of a baby at the centre of a life-support fight were questioned by police after the boy suffered what appeared to be “non-accidental injuries” to his brain and ribs, the Court of Appeal has been told.

The unnamed couple of Bangladesh­i origin brought the case to court when it emerged that the five-month-old infant had tried to breathe after doctors at a London hospital diagnosed him as being brain-stem dead.

Bruno Quintavall­e, their barrister, gave details of the police investigat­ion as he argued the High Court case had been unfair as the pair had no legal representa­tion. Appeal Court judges are due to rule on the case tomorrow.
