Who murdered Sophie Toscan du Plantier?
Journalist Ian Bailey was arrested twice and convicted in absentia in relation to the murder, but maintains his innocence and has never been convicted in Ireland.
He was tried in absentia in France after winning a legal battle against extradition on May 31, 2019 and convicted of murder by the Cour d'Assises de Paris and sentenced to 25 years prison.
France was hoping to secure an extradition from Ireland on the basis of this sentence but on October 12, 2020, Ireland's High Court ruled that Bailey could not be extradited.
Later that same month, the Irish State decided not to appeal the High Court's finding ending the attempt to extradite Bailey.
