Ashya's transfer to Prague 'could be agreed tomorrow'

Ashya King's brother Naveed has posted online that the High Court has been in touch and could agree a transfer to Prague for the five-year-old, where the family hope he can be treated at a hospital specialising in Proton therapy.

Things are moving so fast! High Court has been in contact with our lawyer and could agree transfer to Prague tomorrow! Lets hope they do! We have a family member staying with Ashya all night, Ashya was so happy when he saw my parents and tears were broken, many tears!
