A man wanted by the Garda on suspicion of rape was arrested by the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) at Belfast International Airport on Thursday.
The PSNI’s international policing unit arrested the 31-year-old who earlier failed to appear before court.
PSNI chief inspector Fox said: “The man was identified as being wanted by An Garda Síochána on suspicion of rape, after failing to appear before court.
“Thanks to a strong working collaboration with international law enforcement partners, An Garda Síochána and airport police, the man was apprehended trying to board a flight out of the country.
