No pleas over Carmarthen 'kidnap' claim
Four Latvian men have appeared at Swansea Crown Court in relation to an alleged kidnapping and assault in Carmarthen.
The defendants were unable to enter any pleas due to the fact the court had been unable to arrange for a Latvian interpreter to be present.
Judge Peter Heywood ordered the defendants to return to Swansea Crown Court on September 5 for their next hearing, when they will be asked to enter pleas. The court was informed that a Latvian, Polish and a Bulgarian interpreter would probably be required if a trial was to take place.
Nikiferovs, Turcans and Goldins were all released on bail with the condition that they do not contact any prosecution witnesses.
