Customer Question

Hi Ronan,
My son fled the country 8 years ago because he had an attempt made on his life. Shortly after he left an arrest warrant was issued for him. The gardai called to the house to inform us of this.
The Gardai said that they fully understood his reasons for running and were happy that he didn't flee from justice purposely.
He was caught with €4000 cocaine and his accomplice only received a fine no prison term.
My question is could he ever come back here with out risking arrest.
It is still most likely unsafe for him to return at the moment.
But is there any way for me to find out if he is still wanted.
