Corporal Joeli Raduva, Corporal Thomas Shute, Private Mosese Kuruala, Private Iliakini Raderua and Private Felite Vunisarati were in America as part of a battalion rugby tour.

Judge Tamiko Amaker ruled that bail should remain at $3,000 (2689,78) per soldier and that they would next appear in court on September 17.
