A number of files are being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) following a week-long investigation by gardaí into the purchase of sexual services.

Gardaí stopped 38 members of the public during the investigation in Dublin, Kilkenny, Carlow, Cork, Kerry, Galway and Donegal. Those questioned were contacted on suspicion of having purchased sexual services from an individual involved in prostitution, across rural and urban areas.

The Criminal Law (Sexual Offences) Act 2017 criminalises the purchase of sexual services and the soliciting or purchasing of sex from a trafficked person.

The intelligence-led investigation by the Operation Quest team at the Garda National Protective Services Bureau was assisted by local detective units.

The days of action, from September 16-21, were scheduled to coincide with an Empact (European Multidisciplinary Platform Against Criminal Threats) Week of Action targeting sexual exploitation.
