Officers from the Police Service of Northern Ireland’s International Policing Unit extradited a man, aged in his 30s, to Romania on Monday, 19th June.

He will now serve a prison sentence in Romania for convictions of kidnap and assault offences.

The man was arrested in Northern Ireland in October 2021 on an international arrest warrant, and has been in prison here for other matters since that time.

Detective Inspector Lennon from the International Policing Unit said: “This is another example showing our continued determination and commitment to work with International Law Enforcement partners to track down wanted persons and bring offenders to justice.

"Our message is clear, Northern Ireland is not a safe haven for any wanted persons trying to avoid arrest and the consequences of their previous actions. We will relentlessly pursue those that are trying to delay or deny justice to victims of crime.”
