PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Issue date: Friday June 28, 2013. The Judicial Communications Office said a decision would be released at about midday. Brady’s bid for a move from Ashworth Hospital has been heard at a mental health tribunal, which adjourned on Wednesday. His lawyers have questioned whether the hospital has “lost perspective” in being drawn into a battle with the child killer who has previously claimed he wants to kill himself in jail where he cannot be force-fed. On Tuesday, Brady, 75, told the tribunal panel sitting at the hospital in Merseyside that he is not psychotic or insane and should be allowed to serve the rest of his whole life term in prison. Three independent experts called by Brady’s legal team have concluded he is not mentally ill but agree he has a severe personality disorder. See PA story TRIBUNAL Brady.
