Expert's post
When we want to indicate a purpose, the purpose is expressed better by the idiomatic use of an infinitive, such as ‘to investigate’ in this case. So we can ignore B and E.
The second split is //ism. In A, 'that fled and has subsequently applied' is unparallel. In C, ‘having fled and subsequently applying’ is un//.

D remains. ‘who fled and subsequently applied’ is //. Correct choice
