Detective Mullen said: "This successful operation highlights strong international cooperation enjoyed by the Garda Extradition Unit. 

"This operation also highlights the continued commitment of domestic stakeholders including the Department of Justice, The Defence Forces and the Irish Prison Service all of whom work in tandem to ensure wanted fugitives are brought to justice."
