Six members of Cuba Men’s Volleyball National Team, who were charged with aggravated rape, have appeared in a Finnish regional court.



The trial of Dariel Miranda, Alfonso Gavilán, Ricardo Calvo, Luis Sosa, Osmany Uriarte and Rolando Cepeda began today behind closed doors in the District Court of Pirkanmaa and is expected to last three days.

The players, who have been held in police custody since they were arrested last month, have denied the charges, but if found guilty they will face maximum eightyear prison sentences.

Recall that eight Cuban players were initially arrested in early July. They were arrested during the 2016 FIVB Volleyball World League in Tampere. Two were subsequently released.
