MADRID — A British judge has given the go-ahead for a boy whose parents had been jailed after they took him out of a British hospital without informing doctors to receive treatment in the Czech Republic.

Britain's Press Association news agency reports the judge agreed that 5-year-old Ashya King can be taken to Prague by his parents for the treatment they want to prevent a brain tumor from growing again.

The King's Spanish lawyer and a spokeswoman for the hospital in Malaga where Ashya is staying did not answer calls Friday seeking comment.

British authorities issued a warrant for the couple's arrest after they took the boy out of a hospital without informing doctors. They were found near Malaga and arrested but released from a jail near Madrid on Tuesday following a public outcry.
