Andrew Tate and his brother were released from a Bucharest jail and placed on house arrest.
In December Andrew Tate and his brother were apprehended by law enforcement officials in Romania and faced charges related to sex-trafficking allegations of at least six women.
According to Libertatea, a Romanian news outlet, police surrounded the villa where Tate and his brother Tristan were staying and arrested them on charges of kidnapping, international human trafficking, and rape.
“Four people who are reasonably suspected of being involved in criminal activity were taken for questioning. Following the hearings, the prosecutors of the Directorate for the Investigation of Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT) – Central Structure ordered the four persons to be detained for a period of 24 hours,” DIICOT said in a statement.
After being held in jail for three months, Andrew Tate, his brother and two female accomplices were released on house arrest amid an ongoing investigation into the alleged crimes.
The Daily Mail reported:
Andrew Tate, his brother and two alleged female accomplices have been released on house arrest from a Bucharest jail amid an ongoing investigation into alleged human trafficking, rape and crime gang offences.
Tate, 36, was arrested on December 29 in Bucharest along with Tristan and two Romanian women – Luana Radu, 32, and Georgina Naghel, 28 – on suspicion of several offences and forming an organised crime group to exploit victims.
Earlier this month, all four appeared at a bail hearing which Tate hoped would result in him being released from prison and placed under house arrest after nearly three months behind bars.
That bail application was rejected by a judge on Wednesday and all four appealed the decision.
But now, the latest ruling by the Court of Appeal in Bucharest means the brothers and two accomplices have been released from prison and will be placed under house arrest, Tate’s spokesman told MailOnline.
