TWO Limerick men are being questioned by Police in the Netherlands following an international operation targeting the activities of the Kinahan crime cartel.
The men, who both have criminal convictions, were two of eight men who were arrested in Amsterdam on Thursday morning.
It’s reported that one of them has gangland connections and previously made a significant settlement with the Criminal Assets Bureau.
A further four people were arrested in Meath and Dublin as part of the intelligence-led operation, which was led by Assistant Commissioner John O’Driscoll.
