Officers from the Police Service of Northern Ireland’s International Policing Unit have extradited a 52-year-old man from Northern Ireland to Slovakia on Monday, 29th January.

The man, wanted in relation to a number of fraud offences, will now stand trial in Slovakia.

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.”
