A lawyer has told Good Morning Britain that the parents of Ashya King did the right thing to refuse extradition.
Karen Todner said that if the couple had accepted extradition they would have been detained in custody for 10 days before being returned to the UK.
She added that Brett and Naghmeh King have a good defence because the UK are attempting to extradite the pair on acts of cruelty.
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.
