Wanted man extradited back from Bulgaria to NI arrested for child sexual offences
The Police Service of Northern Ireland’s International Policing Unit have yesterday, Friday 31st March, detained and conveyed a 35-year-old man back to Northern Ireland from Bulgaria.
Chief Inspector Fox said:
“He was extradited by virtue of a European Arrest Warrant sought by the Police Service of Northern Ireland after he fled the country while on bail in relation to child sexual offences.
“Thanks to combined efforts with the Bulgarian National Police Service and our International judicial partners, the wanted fugitive is now in our custody and is expected to appear at Belfast Magistrates Court today, Saturday 1st April.
“This latest arrest shows how by working together, there are no borders and no safe places to hide for those seeking to evade justice."
