Brett and Naghmeh King are set to travel to Spain after their son's proton therapy treatment came to an end.
Asked why he was reluctant to return to the UK, Mr King said there was "so much still at stake" and did not want to risk losing Ashya.
"At the moment we don't feel 100% safe, I suppose you would call it, contemplating being in England until perhaps they do this investigation into how everything was conducted for us," Mr King told Sky News.

The death of a British woman in Thailand highlights the dangers of 'cheap surgery' abroad, one of the UK's leading plastic surgeons has said.
Michael Cadier, president of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, said: "This tragic case highlights how, if lured by the prospect of what is essentially 'cheap surgery', patients can be left vulnerable."
"In some cases, patients are even being treated by a person without proper surgical credentials - if any at all - which breaches all the fundamental guidelines for safe practice in cosmetic surgery in the UK," he added.
"When you go abroad in search of 'cheap cosmetic surgery', you're entrusting your life to individuals whose main concern may be their pocket - not the patient."
