Woman arrested in Sweden over prostitution and human trafficking in Northern Ireland

A 30-year-old woman has been arrested in Sweden as part of a investigation into prostitution and human trafficking in Northern Ireland.

Detectives from the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) have travelled to Sweden to extradite her.

The woman, a Romanian, was detained under a European arrest warrant.

Det Insp Mark Bell said she is due in court in Belfast on Thursday to face charges including human trafficking and controlling prostitution.

The alleged offences date back three years and the investigation is being carried out by the PSNI's human trafficking unit.
