Four Gardaí arrested as part of investigation into alleged corruption
A private citizen has also been arrested.
Four members of An Garda Síochána have been arrested as part of an investigation into alleged corruption in public office.
In a statement, a Garda spokesperson revealed that the four arrested Gardaí are based in the south of the country.
As part of the probe - which is being led by Assistant Commissioner, Organised and Serious Crime, John O’Driscoll - a private citizen was also arrested.
The five people have been charged with offences relating to perverting the course of justice.
The arrests and charges came following directions received from the Director of Public Prosecutions.
All five individuals have been released on station bail and are due to appear before Limerick Court on 14 May, 2021.
As the investigation is ongoing, An Garda Síochána has said it will not be commenting further.
Last November, eight Gardaí were suspended over allegations of corruption in public office in Munster.
