Andrew Tate who has been on house arrest since early 2023, has been charged with human trafficking, rape, and forming an organized crime group to exploit women sexually in Romania.
Along with his brother Tristan, who is also facing the same charges, both have denied the allegation, saying the charges against them are politically motivated and made up in order to silence them.
The Tate brother has faced a series of allegation for over 8 months; In March, they were moved from custody to house arrest following a ruling by a Romanian judge.
“While this news is undoubtedly predictable, we embrace the opportunity it presents to demonstrate their innocence and vindicate their reputation.” Tate Media responded to the allegation. The team also requested that they should be given time to present a comprehensive body of evidence.
Tate who has been a voice of non-relenting masculinity also faced two other separate charges under investigation, including money laundering and trafficking of minors.
