EIGHTEEN PEOPLE ARE still being held this morning following a major Garda operation targeting organised crime in Dublin.

Another five people – four men and one woman – who were arrested on foot of European Arrest Warrants have appeared before a court and are expected to be deported.

All of the arrests were carried out as part of Operation Wireless which was set up by Garda Commissioner Martin Callinan to target specific people involved in organised crime across the capital city.

Gardaí from the Criminal Assets Bureau, the National Drug Unit and the Garda Bureau of Fraud Investigation were all involved in the operation.  More than 50 homes and premises were searched on Thursday.
