The suspected Isil supporter who is deemed to pose a threat to national security has been under surveillance by gardaí for at least three years.

In November, an Irish Independent investigation revealed how the foreign national had been identified by gardaí and international security agencies as the leader of an Irish-based network providing logistical support for Isil fighters travelling to Syria and Iraq.

The alleged Isil facilitator provides cash and false documents including Irish passports which were obtained in this country.
