Andrew Tate, a controversial influencer, along with his brother Tristan, have been freed from prison in Romania and have been placed under house arrest.
This came after they won their appeal against being detained in jail.
The Bucharest Court of Appeal decided in favour of Tate’s appeal, which contested a judge’s ruling last week to prolong his detention for an additional 30 days, according to an official.
Andrew Tate, a former professional kickboxer who is 36 years old, and his brother Tristan are currently under investigation for allegations of sexual assault and exploitation.
A court in Bucharest issued an order rejecting the proposal to extend the duration of their preventive detention.
This pertains to the defendants Andrew Tate III, Tristan Tate, Georgiana Manuela Naghel, and Alexandra Luana Radu. The court has replaced the preventive detention measure with house arrest, which will last for 30 days.
According to the document, the defendants must be released immediately. Mateea Petrescu, Andrew Tate’s communications director, informed FOX3 that the authorities have allowed the brothers to be freed under house arrest as they do not pose a flight risk nor a threat to public safety.
However, the investigation is still ongoing. Petrescu stated that the defendants are overjoyed at the news and are eager to return home.
They managed to remain optimistic and upbeat while in jail, and this news has lifted their spirits even more.
The brothers are also suspected of committing organized crime and human trafficking. They were arrested on December 29th of the previous year, but no formal charges have been filed against them thus far.
Their appeals for release from custody were rejected four times since their detention in December. Two Romanian women who were arrested alongside the brothers have also not been charged formally.
DIICOT, Romania’s anti-organized crime agency, announced that it had discovered six victims who were allegedly subjected to physical and mental coercion, as well as sexual exploitation by members of the supposed crime group, in a statement after the arrests.
According to the agency, the victims were enticed with promises of love but were later threatened, monitored, and subjected to other forms of coercion while being forced to participate in pornographic activities for the criminal group’s financial benefit.
Romanian officials reported that they had confiscated assets and cash worth almost £3.25m from Andrew Tate’s residence, including high-end automobiles. Tate was banned from Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube for violating policies on “dangerous individuals” and violating hate speech regulations.
Although he was removed from Twitter in 2017, he was reinstated in November 2022.
