The noose of the law is tightening on the Kinahan crime cartel after the United Arab Emirates today froze their assets.
The leaders of the crime gang including son Daniel Kinahan are based in Dubai.
It follows the US sanctions imposed on Daniel Kinahan, his father Christopher Senior and his brother Christopher Junior and four other gang members.
A bounty of $5M was put on the three gang members.
Dubai is one of the seven emirates in the federation of the UAE.
The authorities in the UAE say the move is in line with its national framework and international commitments for tackling crime.
The Minister for Justice welcomed the announcement, saying it shows the swift impact of the sanctions announced last week.
Helen McEntee said “The net is now closing on the Kinahan Organised Crime Group”.
