The defendants spoke only to confirm their name during today’s hearing, which was delayed by nearly an hour because only one Lithuanian interpreter arrived at court.
Judge Patrick Maloney told the defendants: “Today I remand you into custody.
“You can discuss with your lawyers about whether to seek bail in the future.
“You will come back to this court on August 30, when you will be asked to plead either guilty or not guilty.
“Before that time you will be asked to provide a written statement of your defence.
“The trial will take place in October.”
Judge Maloney also ordered that three interpreters are present at the next hearing, which is scheduled to take place on August 30.
