A 43-YEAR-OLD man arrested as part of an ongoing investigation into alleged staged road traffic collisions has been released without charge.

Gardaí attached to the Garda National Economic Bureau carried out a search in north Dublin and subsequently arrested a man for an offence under the Civil Liabilities Act 2004. 

The 43-year-old was detained at a Dublin garda station under section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984. 

He has since been released without charge this evening. 

A file will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

A search warrant was also executed at a solicitor’s office in the Dublin area, as part of the overall investigation. 

A garda spokesperson added that the investigation is ongoing and further updates will follow.
