Man with European arrest warrant in place for human trafficking arrested by Gardaí in Dublin

The man has had a warrant out for his arrest since 2016 for trafficking of adults and children.

A 55-year-old man with a European Arrest Warrant in place for the human trafficking of adults and children has been arrested by Gardaí in Dublin.

On Tuesday (10 November), Gardaí attached to the Garda Extradition Unit and Garda National Bureau of Criminal Investigation arrested the man at a location in North Dublin.

The warrant was issued in 2016 by Romanian authorities following the man’s conviction for offences of human trafficking of adults and children.

Commenting on the arrest, Detective Superintendent Michael J. Mullen of the Garda Extradition Unit said: "This significant arrest coordinated by detectives attached to Organised and Serious Crime represents our ongoing commitment to ensuring persons wanted on foot of International arrest warrants are brought to justice.”

The arrested man will appear before the Extradition High Court at 11am on Tuesday morning.
