Andrew Tate and his brother, Tristan, have been in police custody since 29 December, following allegations of rape, people trafficking, and forming an organised crime group. Both brothers have denied the accusations.

Their detention period, originally scheduled to end on 29 April, has been replaced by a recent ruling from the Court of Appeal in Bucharest. The ruling has also granted the release of Georgiana Naghel and Luana Radu, but all four individuals must remain in their respective residences unless they receive specific judicial permission to leave.

Andrew Tate has gained a substantial online following, despite his controversial opinions and advice to fans, and he has continued to use his active Twitter account since his arrest.

Although Andrew and Tristan had applied for bail, their request was rejected in early March, and a subsequent appeal by Andrew Tate's lawyers was unsuccessful on 29 March.

Following his release from prison, Andrew Tate released a statement on Friday 31 March, stating that 'eventually, the fire of truth will destroy all lies.' Although he has been released, he will be under house arrest until April 29.
