Death threats over Charlie Gard case

Death threats over Charlie Gard case

Police have been contacted after staff at Great Ormond Street Hospital received death threats in connection with the Charlie Gard case.

'Many of the messages are menacing, including death threats'.

The hospital believes that 11-month-old Charlie has suffered irreversible brain damage that treatment can not fix.

Charlie's father, Chris Gard, yelled "Evil!" at Gollop as his mother, Connie Yates, began to cry.

He's now being treated at Great Ormond Street Hospital, alive only because a machine is helping him breathe. The hospital says the treatment would cause suffering and would not help his situation, suggesting that life-support to the baby should stop.

However, a hearing at the High Court has been scheduled to discuss fresh evidence from two global hospitals about nucleoside therapy.

MacLeod said families visiting other ill children have also been "harassed and discomforted" on the grounds of the renowned hospital in London.

Staff have received abuse in the street as well as via online messages.

Meanwhile, worshippers have lined up in the streets, dozens at a time, to perform prayers in the streets. He said it was God's doing that made Muslims boycott the site.

"Despite conflicting issues, we have always had the utmost respect for all the staff who work tirelessly at Great Ormond Street Hospital and the very hard jobs they do every day".

"However, in recent weeks the GOSH community has been subjected to a shocking and disgraceful tide of hostility and disturbance".

The case has garnered worldwide attention and even drawn comment from President Donald Trump and Pope Francis. The United States Congress has even taken steps to grant Charlie residency in the U.S.in the hopes that it would facilitate him being moved for possible treatment.

President Trump and the Vatican have spoken out in support of Charlie Gard, a terminally ill British infant whose case has captured worldwide attention. "We fully understand that there is intense public interest, and that emotions run high", she added.

The court has previously ruled in favour of GOSH and said the baby should be allowed to die with dignity.

At a pre-court hearing on Friday, a lawyer for the hospital, Katie Gollop, said that the results of the child's latest brain scans make for "sad reading", the Associated Press reported. The parents said at the hearing it was the first time they were being told about the latest results in the crucial test of Charlie's brain function, according to the AP.

Columbia University neurology professor Michio Hirano visited Charlie in London last Monday and Tuesday to examine him and meet with doctors from the hospital.
