Suspected ISIS fundraisers held in Dublin over Syria cash transfers

A group of Dublin-based ISIS fundraisers was collecting money in the Republic and sending it to the terrorist group in Syria while staying below the radar of international security services, gardaí believe.

After an inquiry by specialist Garda units, four people were arrested yesterday morning.

Gardaí believe at least tens of thousands of euros was sent to ISIS in Syria.

A number of addresses were also searched yesterday, including in Dublin’s north inner city.

One of the suspects is male and his sister and his partner were also detained. A third woman under arrest is believed to be the former partner of the man being questioned.

The Garda has had suspected Islamic State, or Isis, sympathisers, fundraisers, recruiters and foreign fighters on a watch list for well over a decade.

However, it is understood the four people under arrest late last night were not being watched over a long period of time.
