A man is due before Dublin District Court this morning charged in connection with a human trafficking investigation.

The 33-year-old was arrested in the city yesterday as part of an ongoing investigation into the trafficking of Polish nationals by organised criminals for the purpose of sexual exploitation.

This is the third person to face charges since the operation started in 2012.

In a statement, gardaí say: "During the course of the investigation a number of female victims were identified and interviewed by Gardaí.

"Those identified are continuing to receive support from Ruhama and the HSE," it adds. 

A number of garda units have been involved in the investigation, and have received assistance from the Polish National Trafficking Unit, the PSNI, Europol and Interpol.
