Irish investment fraud - man due in court

Irish police have arrested and charged a man as part of a major investigation into "serious investment fraud".

The 50-year-old was detained in Dublin on Thursday by officers from the Garda Bureau of Fraud Investigation.

He is due to appear before the Courts of Criminal Justice within the hour.

Last July, garda detectives carried out a search of a house in Monkstown in south Dublin as part of the same investigation.
