Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan Tate’s detention has been extended for a third time by another 30 days in Romania. It means they will remain in custody until the end of March. According to media reports, the Bucharest Court of Appeal has increased the arrest warrants of Tate and his brother with two suspects: Georgiana Naghel and Luana Radu.
Since late December 2022, both brothers have been held in jail for allegations of personal assault. As per Ramona Bolla, a spokesperson of DIICOT (an anti-organized crime agency in Romania), the judge extended the arrest when Tate lost his appeal at the court. All four suspects have been denied the charges of human trafficking.
The 36-year-old social media influencer Andrew Tate was always in the media due to his controversial statements about women. His bail request was also rejected at the hearing. This was the fourth request that the court rejected. However, the condition for the bail still needs to be clarified.
During his detention, the court decided to release the two Romanian women from custody, but they will remain under house arrest. The spokesperson of Andrew Tate said to the media that his legal team would appeal before 48 hours.
Andrew Tate and Tristan Tate Remain in Custody During the Investigation
The recent decision has extended the stay of Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan Tate in custody as they lost appeals against the rulings. Judges also justified the earlier extension and stated that the case falls under the law of “the defendants to exercise permanent psychological control over the victims.”
The Romanian government needs more time to discover the truth behind all the actions and allegations of human trafficking. After the judgment, the lawyer of the Tate brothers spoke to the journalist and told them that no new evidence was presented at the hearing.
Over the happenings during the case, Andrew claimed he was innocent and said the government had no evidence against him. He also passed the statement that “You’ll find out the truth of this case soon.” On the contrary, Romanian authorities have seized Tate’s assets worth nearly £3.25 million, including luxury cars.
By detailing the case, DIICOT said that six victims have been identified for the issue of human trafficking and fall under the allegations of “acts of physical violence and mental coercion” and personal exploitation. The agency report unfolds that victims were lured by love and intimated later.
