Andrew Tate Denied Bail at Hearing and Will Remain in Prison

Andrew Tate will remain in prison after his request for bail has been denied.

Tate, and his younger brother Tristan, are being detained in Bucharest, Romania, on suspicion of human trafficking, rape and forming an organised crime group.

The brothers were detained on 29th December 2022, and have been in prison ever since. Tate’s detention has previously been extended by 30 days three times, with his appeals rejected.

He had hope for an early release today, but his plea for bail was dismissed.

Upon the decision to reject bail, a spokesperson for Tate said: “Unfortunately, the Romanian judicial system denied Andrew Tate’s request for bail today. We are disappointed in this outcome as we had high hopes to see Andrew reunited with his family. His legal team will be appealing this decision within the 48hr time frame.”

Famous for his online presence where he shares heavily misogynistic views, the 36 year-old was banned from social media prior to his arrest, due to expressing hate speech.

In January, Romanian authorities descended on a compound linked with the Tate brothers and towed away a fleet of luxury cars that included a Rolls-Royce, a Ferrari and a Porsche. – They seized assets worth an estimated £3.24 million.

Prosecutors have said that if they can prove the cars’ owners gained money through illicit activities such as human trafficking, the assets would be used to cover the expenses of the investigation and to compensate victims.

Tate also unsuccessfully appealed against the asset seizure.

Despite his ban, Tate has now regained his Twitter profile, that has over 5 million followers, and has been providing regular updates from behind bars.
