A woman has been arrested in relation to a criminal organization that engages in money laundering, organized prostitution, and running brothels.

The 20-year-old woman is being arrested tonight in a Garda station in Dublin. She is believed to be a member of an Eastern European gang that operates a brothel and prostitution racket.

Additionally, searches have been conducted in connection with the inquiry.





A spokesman for the Garda said: "Gardai attached to the Organised Prostitution Investigation Unit in the Garda National Protective Services Bureau (GNPSB) have arrested a female (aged in her 20s) as part of an ongoing investigation into an Eastern European Organised Crime Group operating in this jurisdiction.

"The investigation focuses on persons attached to an Eastern European Organised Crime Group who are suspected of being involved in organised prostitution, brothel-keeping and money laundering. A number of searches have been carried out in relation to this investigation.

"As part of this operation, Gardai in the Organised Prostitution Investigation Unit aim to identify victims as well as disrupt, disperse and prosecute persons involved in this type of organised crime."
