ERU on streets as new Fat Freddie war erupts - City News, National News - Herald.ie: "Thompson and his gangland pal Gary Hutch are currently in hiding in Amsterdam's criminal underworld after European Arrest Warrants were issued for the pair by Spanish police.
Authorities in the Costa Del Sol wish to quiz them over the killing of gun-for-hire Paddy Doyle in 2008 in the Costa Del Sol and their involvement with Christy Kinahan's drugs empire.
Under the terms of the warrant the gangster can be arrested by gardai on sight and deported to Spain.
Spanish authorities believe that the men's accounts of what happened that day could be the key to discovering Doyle's killer.
The pair may face charges for withholding information if and when they are detained.
Doyle was travelling in a jeep along with Thompson and Hutch in Estepona in February 2008 when their vehicle was stopped.
Doyle was shot twice in the head, while his pals narrowly avoided injury in the attack.
Fat Freddie has been travelling between Holland, England and Ireland in recent months and has been carrying out attacks and intimidation tactics on dealers in Dublin."
