Two people have been arrested in Donegal over human trafficking and organised crime offences.
The arrested were made this week by Gardaí from the Human Trafficking Investigation and Coordination Unit (HTICU) at the Garda National Protective Services Bureau (GNPSB) carried.
An operation in Letterkenny on Monday resulted in a male in his 40s being arrested. He appeared before Falcarragh District Court (sitting in Letterkenny) this morning charged with an offence under the Illegal Immigrants (Trafficking) Act 2000.
A further arrest took place this morning and that individual remains in Garda custody under the same legislation.
A garda spokesperson said: “The Garda National Protective Services Bureau is committed to supporting victims of all crime and is calling on anyone who has been the victim of Human Trafficking to contact the Garda National Protective Services Bureau, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station, where they will be treated with the utmost sensitivity.”
