European Arrest Warrant issued for gang boss ‘Fat’ Freddie Thompson

'Fat' Freddie Thompson

AN international arrest warrant has been issued for gang boss ‘Fat’ Freddie Thompson.

The 33-year-old is wanted in relation to a violent pub row in January 2013.

The pub brawl happened after the funeral of Thompson’s friend Christopher Warren.

Thompson had been given special permission by Spanish police to return to Ireland for the funeral.

It is believed that Spanish authorities failed to inform the gardai of Thompson’s return – and that they only learned he was here after examining CCTV footage of the riot.

The DPP has told gardai there is enough evidence to charge the gangster with violent disorder in relation to the incident – which led to the warrant being issued.
