The interceptions sparked off a number of searches and the arrest of a man in May last year.

Gardaí said inquiries established that a suspected network of two families from Georgia, living in Dublin, were allegedly producing and providing false documents to other people across Europe.

As well as the arrests, gardai used 13 warrants issued in October to carry out searches in co-ordination with similar searches in other EU states and a big amount of possible evidential items was seized overall.
