A Cork-based garda is in custody this evening, as part of an investigation into the sending of communications containing false allegations against members of the organisation.

As the Irish Examiner reports, the man was arrested this morning and was taken to Cahir Garda Station, where he is currently being held under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act. He can be held for up to 24 hours.

The communications were sent to garda management and the Garda Siochana Ombudsman Commission.
