Tate's jailed for another 30 days
Andrew Tate, a controversial influencer, has been granted a 30-day extension to his detention in Romania, where he and his brother Tristan are being held on allegations of sexual assault, exploitation, human trafficking, and forming an organised crime group.
The two women who were detained with the brothers will be released from custody but placed under house arrest. All four individuals deny the allegations against them. Tate, who has previously been banned from prominent social media platforms for expressing misogynistic views and hate speech, claims that there is "zero evidence" against him and alleges that the case is politically motivated to silence him.
The DIICOT anti-organised crime agency has identified six victims in the human trafficking case who were subjected to physical violence, mental coercion, and sexual exploitation by members of the alleged crime group. The victims were allegedly recruited by seducing them and claiming they wanted a relationship or marriage, before later coercing them into engaging in pornographic acts for financial gain.
The Romanian authorities have seized assets worth an estimated $3.9 million linked to the Tate brothers, including luxury cars such as a Rolls-Royce, a Ferrari, and a Porsche.
