During the month of January, next month after Gardai launched a three-day operation aimed at organized beggars, there will be about CUYTAS six people.
Officers, uniformed and clearly dressed, from the Pearse Street station in Dublin, patrolled tourist areas occupied from downtown from Friday to Sunday.
Temple Bar and Grafton Street were the main areas of attention for the officers.
Sources said last night that the operation was specifically aimed at those who requested or requested that others ask the streets and that they have taken the money.
It is illegal to organize, control, enforce or direct others to beg. Penalties may include up to five years in prison and fines of 200,000 euros.
Officials can also lead someone to stop begging and a beggar can not ask for money in a threatening or intimidating manner.
The twenty-six are expected to appear in the Criminal Justice Court on December 6.
