British-American influencer Andrew Tate was recently arrested in Romania on suspicion of rape and human trafficking. On Tuesday, a court in Bucharest rejected his appeal and said Tate would remain in custody along with his brother Tristan. The former kickboxer still maintains his innocence.
Romanian police arrested the 36-year-old influencer on December 29 last year. This happened after weapons, a huge amount of money and several girls were found in his luxurious residence, who were supposed to serve as Tate’s sex slaves and create pornographic content for paysites.. According to some sources, the women were supposed to be psychologically abused and had the words “Belong to Tate” tattooed on their bodies.
Together with the influencer, his brother Tristan and two Romanian women, a former policewoman and girlfriend Tate, were arrested. The court extended their initial 24-hour detention to 30 days, against which four appealed. But the court did not grant their request.
Detention for up to three months?
On Tuesday, the Bucharest Court of Appeal ruled the lawsuit against the seizure unfounded. According to him, there is a risk that the accused may leave Romania and thus escape justice. According to the British newspaper Daily Star, four could spend up to 180 days in custody.
During the investigation, prosecutors seized Tate’s assets, including real estate and luxury cars. If found guilty, the man faces up to 15 years in prison.
Thirty-six-year-old Andrew Tate rose to fame in the past, as in 2011 when he became the world champion in kickboxing. In 2016, he became known to the general public thanks to his participation in the British reality show Big Brother. However, he was later expelled from it because a video appeared on the Internet in which he beats a young woman with a belt.
Greta started an influencer by the number of cars
Recently, a controversial British-American influencer gained attention after he was banned from many social networks for misogynistic comments and hateful posts. This also applies to Twitter, where Tate has over 4.5 million followers. But the restrictions were lifted by Elon Musk, the new owner of the social platform.
Recently, the controversial influencer, who has been living in Romania since 2017, fell out with climate activist Greta Thunberg. She hit him for bragging on Twitter that he owns thirty cars, which of course use a lot of fuel. In turn, the activist played a joke on Tate, saying that the size of the fleet, apparently, compensates for the small size of her body.
