Officers from Police Service of Northern Ireland’s International Policing Unit have arrested a 43 year-old Czech national on an extradition arrest warrant issued by the Czech Republic for theft offences.

He will appear before extradition court in Belfast later today, Wednesday 7th February.

Detective Inspector Lennon from the International Policing Unit said: “This is another example of how the Police Service of Northern Ireland works closely with International Law Enforcement partners to track down wanted persons and bring offenders to justice.

“Our message is clear; Northern Ireland is not somewhere you can hide to avoid arrest or the consequences of your actions.

“We will continue to actively pursue those who are trying to delay or deny justice to victims of crime.”
