GARDAÍ HAVE ARRESTED a man at Dublin Airport on foot of a European Arrest Warrant. 

The arrest was made as part of an operation conducted by the extradition unit at the Garda National Bureau of Criminal Investigation. 

Gardaí arrested the man following his extradition from Budapest, Hungary, where he was arrested on Wednesday, 11 December on foot of a European Arrest Warrant for offences committed in this jurisdiction. 

He was sought by An Garda Síochána in respect of alleged offences under the Child Trafficking and Pornography Act 1998. 

The investigation involved close cooperation between gardaí, Hungarian authorities and other partners of the European Network Fugitive Active Search Teams.
