A couple of Muslims living in Waterford City were arrested for suspected terrorism activity.
The man and woman, both in their 20s, were detained and taken into custody as part on an ongoing intelligence operation in the city.
The man hails from Ireland; the woman, from the United Kingdom.
“They were arrested on suspicion of having committed offences under the Criminal Justice Terrorist Offences Act, 2005.
“It is understood they are being held on suspicion of facilitating the transfer of money and information in relation to alleged international terrorist activity.”
RTE also reported the arrests come on the heels of an 18-month investigation by local and national Garda units, who worked with counter-terrorism officials in the United Kingdom.
The Truth Must be Told
Your contribution supports independent journalism
Please take a moment to consider this. Now, more than ever, people are reading Geller Report for news they won't get anywhere else. But advertising revenues have all but disappeared. Google Adsense is the online advertising monopoly and they have banned us. Social media giants like Facebook and Twitter have blocked and shadow-banned our accounts. But we won't put up a paywall. Because never has the free world needed independent journalism more.
Everyone who reads our reporting knows the Geller Report covers the news the media won't. We cannot do our ground-breaking report without your support. We must continue to report on the global jihad and the left's war on freedom. Our readers’ contributions make that possible.
