The man was arrested along with two others, aged 23 and 31, on Monday in counties Antrim and Armagh as part of a probe linked to food production which has been running since last Wednesday.

He was freed by PSNI pending a report to the PPS.

The other two men, who are Romanians living in Portadown, were remanded in custody at Lisburn Magistrates' Court on Tuesday accused of human trafficking and labour exploitation.

They were charged after 20 suspected victims of human trafficking were rescued by officers in Co Armagh.

Fourteen men and six women, who are also Romanian and aged between 20 and 48, were brought to safety from two locations during the past week.
