Andrew Tate's detention has been increased for another 30 days after a court in Romania found a legal reason to do so. The Tate brothers were arrested in December and were accused of involvement in criminal activities such as human trafficking and abuse of women.
Andrew Tate is a British-U.S. citizen, 36 years old, and is well-known for his weird and misogynistic views about the government. Andrew Tate's Twitter account has more than 5.1 million followers, and he was arrested on the 29th of December last year with his brother and two Romanian women. Although they have not been formally charged, investigators are actively looking and compiling evidence to lock them up in prison. The crimes they were accused of ranged from organized crimes and human trafficking.
According to the case prosecutors, the victims of Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan were lured using material possessions. They're forced to undergo inhumane treatment when caught in the Tate brother trap.
Ramona Bolla, a spokesperson for Romania’s anti-organized crime agency, DIICOT, was the one who broke the news that Andrew Tate's detention has been extended for another 30 days. Andrew and his brother Tristan will be put behind bars pending when the 30 days elapse. The two women who were with them when the arrest was made in December will also be put under house arrest for another 30 days.
This is the third time Andrew Tate and his brother have been detained for another 30 days. After they lost an appeal to come out of detention on January 20th and February 1st, the two brothers had to remain there for another 30 days. According to a leaked document from the judge's decision, the judge elongated the detention period because the Tate brothers were particularly dangerous and could identify people "with an increased vulnerability, in search of better life opportunities."
Tate Lawyers Reacts to the Detention Extension
The lawyers representing the Tate brothers have expressed their disappointment with the extension of the detention of the Tate brothers. According to them, the judge didn't have enough evidence to keep the Tate brothers in custody for another 30 days. Eugen Vidineac, one of the lawyers representing the Tate brothers, confirmed that their team had already neutralized the only evidence the judge had against them. So, they were expecting a review of the latest detention extension.
From various sources, Andrew Tate has been living in Romania since 2017. Because of his misogynistic views and hate speech, Andrew Tate was previously banned from many social media platforms. But since lifting the ban on his socials, Andrew Tate has continued from where he stopped, sharing his "weird" views about society.
Despite being in custody, Andrew Tate's Twitter account has been very active, and he has been communicating about his plight in prison. In a post he made on Twitter, Tate said that no one had the power to silence him. He mentioned that he would continue to speak up despite the government's political attack designed against him.
"I can easily think myself into euphoric gratefulness for things as simple as having air to breathe. I can easily think myself into the deepest and darkest depression. I’ve seen hell. I’ve lived hell. I can produce either state," Andrew Tate said on his Twitter.
