The prosecutor's request will have to approved by the judge, although usually in such cases in Spain the state prosecutor's opinion is upheld. The judge is due to make a decision on whether to release the parents on Wednesday.
The prosecutor will also recommend that the parents check in with police on a weekly basis while their UK extradition order is in play.
Ashya King's parents told the Daily Mail they fled the UK after being told NHS treatments would leave him with life-long disabilities.
The head of the police force which applied for a European Arrest warrant against the parents of Ashya King has now urged their release.
A British mother whose son's life was saved by proton therapy has told ITV that she defied NHS doctors' advice to pursue the treatment.
