Influencer Andrew Tate Detained in Romania: Warrant from UK


According to statements from his spokesperson on Tuesday, Andrew Tate, a prominent online influencer, has been detained in Romania and served with an arrest warrant issued by British authorities.

Allegations and Legal Proceedings:

Tate, 37, along with his brother Tristan Tate, faced a 24-hour detention on Monday evening on accusations of sexual aggression dating back to a UK case spanning from 2012 to 2015, as revealed by spokesperson Mateea Petrescu.

The Bucharest Court of Appeal is poised to deliver a critical decision on Tuesday regarding the execution of warrants issued by the UK’s Westminster Magistrates Court.

Alleged Victims’ Response:

Four women reported Tate to UK authorities for alleged sexual violence and physical abuse. Despite the Crown Prosecution Service’s decision not to prosecute him, the alleged victims resorted to crowdfunding to pursue a civil case against him.

Both Tate brothers vehemently deny the charges, expressing deep disappointment at the resurgence of serious allegations without substantial new evidence.

Additional Legal Troubles in Romania:

Andrew Tate faces separate charges in Romania, including rape, human trafficking, and forming a criminal gang to sexually exploit women. He and his brother were arrested in December 2022 and are currently under house arrest, unable to leave Romania.

Tate, known for his sizable social media following, has been banned from several platforms due to misogynistic views and hate speech. He often alleges political conspiracy against him.

Asset Seizure and Legal Victory:

In January, Tate won an appeal against the seizure of his assets by Romanian authorities, including luxury cars, designer watches, and cash valued at approximately 3.6 million euros ($3.9 million).

The legal case in Romania is still in its preliminary stages, with no trial date set yet. The defendants have the opportunity to challenge the prosecutors’ evidence.
