A Finnish prosecutor brought charges of aggravated rape against six members of Cuba National Team.



A prosecutor said they have denied the charges and were being held by the Tampere police until the trial. If convicted, Cuban players face maximum sentence eight years in prison.

Dariel Miranda, Alfonso Gavilán, Ricardo Calvo, Luis Sosa, Osmany Uriarte and Rolando Cepeda allegedly committed sexual offence on the night between Friday (July 1) and Saturday (July 2) in a Tampere hotel during the third week of the 2016 FIVB World League. Initially, eight Cuba NT players were arrested but two were released.

As some media revealed recently, the girl who accused players for rape was a sex worker.

Cuba National Team had to play the 2016 Rio Olympics without these six players and suffered an early elimination from the tournament by losing all five games in the pool stage.
