A man has been arrested in Dublin on suspicion of raping a woman in Belfast in 2003, where he is wanted by the PSNI.

The man was brought before the High Court in Dublin today on foot of a European Arrest Warrant, issued by the UK authorities.

At the arrest hearing, Detective Sergeant Jim Kirwan, of the Garda Extradition Unit, told the court that he arrested the man this morning in Dublin.

Ms Justice Aileen Donnelly said that she was satisfied the man in court was the man named in the European Arrest Warrant and remanded him in custody until May 27, when the case is listed for mention again.
