Ian Bailey has indicated that the French authorities may try him in absence, after failing to have him extradited to face questioning in connection with the murder of Sophie Toscan du Plantier in Schull, Co Cork in 1996.
The former Journalist won his Supreme Court fight to halt his surrender to French authorities yesterday.
His solicitor Frank Buttimer said that steps will now be taken to address a European arrest warrant for his client.
Speaking on TV3's 'Tonight with Vincent Brown' last night, Ian Bailey said the French authorities may still pursue him.
"There is also the point that is being made as well repeatedly by the French authorities that they intend, whether they succeeded with their extradition or not, under their system of law, they are entitled to try people in their absence, in absentia, and they have already indicated that it is their intention to, if they can't get me, to try me in absence," he said.
