The seven were indicted in December 2014 for rape and deprivation of liberty, and the next term will be held August 14 at Vaslui Court. The seven youngsters from Vaslui are required to submit daily to the police, the measure being disposed on Tuesday by the Vaslui county police leadership, following media coverage of the case.
