A 33-year-old man is expected to appear before a sitting of Dublin District Court this morning charged in connection with an ongoing human trafficking investigation.

The man was arrested in Dublin yesterday evening. 

It comes on the back of an investigation launched in 2012 into human trafficking of Polish nationals into the state by organised criminal groups for the purpose of sexual exploitation. 

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.

This is the third person to face charges as part of this investigation.
