The Police Service of Northern Ireland’s International Policing Unit have arrested a 31-year-old man at Belfast International Airport on Thursday, 30th March.
Praising the joint law enforcement operation, Chief Inspector Fox said:
“The man was identified as being wanted by An Garda Síochána on suspicion of rape, after failing to appear before court.
“Thanks to a strong working collaboration with International Law Enforcement partners, An Garda Síochána and Airport Police, the man was apprehended trying to board a flight out of the country.
“He remains in police custody at this time and will now appear at the next available Extradition Court in Belfast.
“This arrest operation demonstrates our relentless determination to proactively track down and hold to account people attempting to evade justice."
