A MAN IS due to appear in court today after being arrested as part of an investigation into money laundering of €1.5 million.

The Garda National Economic Crime Bureau (GNECB) arrested the man, who is in his 20s, in an operation on 2 November.

He is to appear at the Criminal Courts of Justice this morning.

Detectives attached to the GNECB arrested the man on suspicion of laundering cash over a two month period during a surveillance operation.

The laundering involved the lodgement of cash into automatic lodgement machines in bank branches using a third party’s bank card and transferring the money outside the jurisdiction once it was processed.

Between €20,000 and €40,000 in €50 notes was processed almost every day.
