Andrew Tate placed under house arrest in Romania

Andrew Tate, an online influencer, was placed under house arrest in Romania.

As part of the investigation into their alleged involvement in rape and human trafficking, Tate, his brother Tristan, and two Romanian women were placed under house arrest.

After a Romanian court rejected a prosecutor’s request to keep the polarizing online influencer and self-described misogynist Andrew Tate and his brother in police custody until late April, they were placed under house arrest while they are being investigated for alleged involvement in human trafficking and rape.

Since December 29, Tate, his brother Tristan, and two female suspects from Romania have been held by authorities. They are being looked at by prosecutors for possible human trafficking, rape, and organizing a gang to commit crimes and molest women.

The brothers were released from the police central arrest facility in Bucharest at around midnight [21:00 GMT] on Friday, accompanied by their Romanian attorneys. The brothers, who have been accused of everything, deny it. The two suspects who were female were also freed.

Tate’s attorney Eugen Vidineac told reporters on Friday, “We see the court ruling as legal, complete, and correct.”

He said that the brothers were not allowed to speak to witnesses or leave the residence without permission from the police.

The court’s reasoning is still a mystery to us, and we are unsure of any other interdictions, Vidineac stated. Tristan Tate told reporters outside the jail in Romanian, “We’re going home.” Andrew, his brother, remained silent.

Outside the prison, a small group of Tate’s fans, who call him “Top G” among his internet supporters, were waiting for them. The Tate brothers’ attempt to be released on bail was turned down earlier this week by the same Bucharest court of appeals.

Judges have already extended the Tate brothers’ detention because they constituted a flight risk and their release may compromise the investigation. According to Ramona Bolla, a spokeswoman for Romania’s DIICOT anti-organized crime squad, “all four are getting out tonight.” The investigation is ongoing, but the judgment is definitive.

Bolla responded that prosecutors have until the end of June to bring the suspects to trial when questioned about if Friday’s decision will quicken the probe.

The four suspects have been charged under Romanian law, but the matter is still being investigated and has not yet been brought to trial. According to the prosecution, the Tate brothers lured their alleged victims into relationships or marriages by charming them and making false claims that they desired them.

After that, the victims were forced to create pornographic content for social media platforms, which brought in a lot of money.

Tristan has a newborn boy who was born after his arrest, and the Tate brothers relocated to Romania several years ago.

Romanian police have searched multiple properties connected to the Tate brothers as part of the investigation and have seized several of their belongings, including a collection of high-end vehicles.

One woman was allegedly “recruited” from the United Kingdom after falling in love with Andrew Tate, who then brought her to Romania “with the intention of sexual exploitation,” according to a court record dated January.

Tate made an appearance on the British reality television program “Big Brother” in 2016, but he was later kicked off after a video surfaced of him assaulting a woman. After being banned from multiple social media platforms for making hateful and misogynistic remarks, he subsequently moved to social media to spread his divisive ideas.

Following the acquisition of the company by South African-born entrepreneur Elon Musk, Tate was given permission to rejoin Twitter, where he has 5.5 million followers.
