On Thursday, the Garda National Cyber Crime Bureau (GNCCB) arrested a man, aged in his 40s in connection with an ongoing investigation into transnational cybercrime.

The man has since been charged and is due to appear before Cork City District Court.

A woman, aged 42, was also arrested but has since been released without charge.
