Tom Evans posted a message on Facebook to tell supporters that he and Alfie’s mother will be informing the world of what transpired in the five days between Alfie’s ventilator being torn from his lungs and the boy’s death.
“It’s been 1 month and 2 weeks since our gladiator was [taken] away from us, deprived, neglected, mistreated and respected!” Evans wrote on June 16.
“We wanted everyone to know that in time as we grieve, we will be speaking out further [about] the build up to Alfie’s death,” he continued, “and we will be speaking out the truth and in detail about the week that we had to go through, that no other parents should ever, ever go through or imagine!”
...Evans referred to a recent disclosure, thanks to a freedom of information inquiry, that Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust had paid over £145,000 in legal bills in its quest to bring the child’s life to an end. He described the hospital’s actions as murder.
