Update: Andrew Tate and his brother’s detention in Romania has been extended due to allegations of rape and human trafficking.



Social networking sites Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan will remain in police custody until February 27, according to Tate’s lawyers, after a Romanian court extended their detention on Friday, January 20.

Romanian authorities are looking into the siblings on suspicion of human trafficking and rape.


As part of the investigation, police in Romania served search warrants at five homes and detained four suspects – two Britons and two Romanians.



The four suspects had previously been detained for 24 hours, according to Romania’s Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT).

On December 30, their lawyer Eugen Vidineac announced that a Bucharest court had accepted DIICOT’s request to keep Tate and his brother Tristan in custody for another 30 days. This has been extended until February 27th.



DIICOT claimed that the four suspects were part of an organized criminal group that traveled from Romania to the United Kingdom and the United States to commit human trafficking.


Last Thursday, DIICOT announced that seven more properties had been searched as part of the investigation, bringing the total number of properties investigated to 12.

Authorities in Romania claim that two of the suspects misled the victims “into believing that they intended to enter into a marriage/cohabitation relationship” while transporting them to Romania and then sexually exploiting them with physical violence and coercion.



Authorities also stated that one of the suspects raped a victim twice in March 2022. According to the DIICOT statement, at least six victims were “sexually exploited” by the organized criminal group.


Romanian authorities announced on Monday that they had seized nearly $4 million in Tate assets over the previous week. Motor vehicles, luxury watches, and sums of money in various currencies are among the 29 seized assets, according to the country’s Asset Recovery and Management Agency (ANABI).

Tate, a former pro kickboxer, is well-known for his viral social media posts about male dominance, female submission, and wealth. He openly supports domestic violence against women.


He was barred from using every major social media platform until Elon Musk took over the company and reinstated his Twitter account.

During the week before his arrest, he made headlines for a Twitter exchange with Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg, who told Tate to “get a life” after he tweeted about his numerous cars “and their respective enormous emissions.”
