No Chance of Bailey Facing French Trial
Last updated on
There’s no chance of Ian Bailey ever going to France to face a new murder trial, according to his solicitor.
It’s after French president Emmanuel Macron said a new trial could be arranged for him in Paris.
Ian Bailey was convicted in his absence of the murder of Sophie Toscan du Plantier by a French court in 2019.
France has failed to get him extradited from Ireland, and he has never been charged here with the crime, which happened in west Cork 25 years ago.
His solicitor, Frank Buttimer, has responded to President Macron’s comments this morning.
