The French could make a fourth attempt to extradite Ian Bailey early next year.

That's according to a solicitor for Sophie Toscan du Plantier's family, whose relative was murdered in west Cork 25 years ago.

Ian Bailey is wanted in France over the killing - although he's never been charged here.

Solicitor Alain Spilliaert  says the European Commission has raised concerns about how Ireland implements European Arrest Warrants.

And he says that could lead to a new effort to extradite Ian Bailey.

"It could be done very quickly in parliament, a change in the law.

"As soon it is done, process will start again. There will be a notification to Bailey, he would be able to lodge recourse before the High Court in Dublin, but the situation would be different."
