Meanwhile, At The High Court


Ian Bailey

RTÉ reports:

The High Court has refused a second attempt by French authorities to have Ian Bailey extradited to face trial over the death of Sophie Toscan du Plantier.

Mr Justice Tony Hunt said the second application for his extradition was an abuse of process and the matter had already been decided by the Supreme Court in 2012.

The judge said the fact that the domestic legal system had comprehensively determined the issue was ignored in processing the latest application.

    Well done, Judge Hunt. Perhaps this will help to bring an end to a disgraceful episode.

    Association for the Truth about Sophie (ASOPH Fabled) indeed.

    You can see the strings all the way back to Paris.
