Controversial influencer Andrew Tate, along with his brother Tristan, have been released from prison in Romania and placed under house arrest.
This came after they won their appeal against their detention in prison.
The Bucharest Court of Appeal ruled in favor of the appeal of Tate, who challenged a judge’s decision last week to extend his detention for another 30 days, according to an official.
Andrew Tate, a 36-year-old former professional kickboxer, and his brother Tristan are currently being investigated for allegations of sexual assault and exploitation.
A Bucharest court issued an order rejecting the proposal to extend their pre-trial detention.
This concerns defendants Andrew Tate III, Tristan Tate, Georgiana Manuela Naghel and Alexandra Luana Radu. The court replaced the preventive detention measure with house arrest, which will last 30 days.
According to the document, the defendants must be released immediately. Mateea Petrescu, director of communications for Andrew Tate, told FOX3 that authorities have authorized the release of the brothers to house arrest because they pose no flight risk or threat to public safety.
However, the investigation is still ongoing. Petrescu said the defendants were delighted with the news and looked forward to returning home.
They managed to stay upbeat and optimistic in prison, and this news lifted their spirits even more.
The brothers are also suspected of committing organized crime and human trafficking. They were arrested on December 29 of the previous year, but no formal charges have been brought against them so far.
Their requests for release have been denied four times since their detention in December. Two Romanian women who were arrested alongside the brothers have also not been formally charged.
DIICOT, Romania’s 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 alleged criminal group, in a statement after the arrests.
According to the agency, the victims were lured with promises of love but were then threatened, monitored and subjected to other forms of coercion while being forced to participate in pornographic activities for the financial benefit of the criminal group.
Romanian officials reported they confiscated assets and cash worth almost £3.25million from Andrew Tate’s residence, including high-end automobiles. Tate has been banned from Instagram, Facebook and YouTube for violating “dangerous individuals” policies and breaching hate speech regulations.
Although he was removed from Twitter in 2017, he was reinstated in November 2022.
