Two women and one man have been charged with two counts of abduction at a sitting of Nenagh District Court yesterday.
An appeal was launched last weekend to locate five-year-old Patrick Horvath and his eight-year-old brother Fabricio, who were last seen in Belfast on Friday May 14th.
They two boys were found in Thurles in Co Tipperary on Tuesday, and have since been returned safely to the North.
Yesterday afternoon, three people arrested as part of the investigation appeared before Nenagh District Court.
They were 34-year-old Svetlana Fatanova and 41-year-old Ivan Lakatosa, both of 65 Fairview Road, Newtownabbey; and also 51-year-old Bozena Stojkova of 3 Clanchattan Street, Belfast.
All three were charged with two counts of child abduction.
The Judge refused bail to all three people following Garda objections.
They've been remanded in custody to appear via video-link at Tipperary Town District Court, sitting in Nenagh, next Wednesday June 2nd.
