On Thursday the 15th September 2022, An Garda Síochána Extradition Unit supported by colleagues from the Public Order Unit and Immigration Unit surrendered a 34-year-old fugitive to Lithuanian police colleagues at Dublin Port.
The 34-year-old male is wanted in Lithuania for serious offences of criminal organisation human trafficking and drug distribution and has strong links to organised crime.
The 34-year-old fugitive travelled by ferry and overland to his native Lithuania, arriving in Lithuania on Sunday the 18th September 2022.
Detective Superintendent Michael Mullen, Garda National Bureau of Criminal Investigation stated ‘The successful surrender of this male to the Lithuanian authorities re-enforces the strong working relationship between An Garda Síochána and our European counterparts in ensuring fugitives are returned to the requesting state to serve justice.'
