A 42-year-old man has been before Dublin District Court charged in connection with an international money laundering investigation.

Adam Mohammed, from Cherry Orchard Green in Ballyfermot, was arrested this morning by gardaí from the National Economic Crime Bureau.

Detective Garda Thomas Victory told the court Mr Mohammed had nothing to say when the charges were put to him.

Mr Mohammed faces nine charges of handling the proceeds of criminal conduct.

The alleged offences relate to nine international transfers with a combined total of almost €2 million, which were received into four bank accounts at various Irish financial institutions between May 2014 and November 2015.

He is also charged with one count of possessing a false instrument - a copy of a letter purporting to be from Ballyfermot Credit Union.

The court heard Mr Mohammed, who is originally from Nigeria, has been in Ireland for 20 years and is an Irish citizen with a family here.

He was granted bail on condition that he sign-on once a week at Ballyfermot Garda Station and surrender his passport.

He was remanded in custody until his passport is surrendered.

Mr Mohammed will be back in court again on Thursday.
