Romanian court ordered Andrew Tate along with his brother and two female suspects to serve their full 30-day sentence after he appealed for reduced prison time
A Romanian court has ordered the rejection of an appeal filed by influencer and professional kickboxer Andrew Tate against his detention.
Tate along with his brother and two female suspects were arrested by Romanian authorities on December 29, on suspicion of several charges, according to a report in the Guardian on Tuesday, January 9.
The allegations include suspicion of rape, and human trafficking as well as forming an organised crime group, with an aim to exploit women.
While both men have denied all the allegations, they had filed an appeal against the seizure of their belongings as well as a reduction in the period of their arrest warrants.
The court eventually ordered all four suspects to be held in preventive custody for a period of 30 days.
“I am very disappointed – the measure seems excessive to me,” said Eugen Vidineac, the lawer of the defendants said, as per a quote cited in the report.
The hearing, which took almost six hours, was announced after the two Tate brothers had left the courtroom.
The government of Romania has so far seized over 10 of their properties along with 15 luxury cars. Romanian organised crime agency, Diicot, said that they were confiscating them to prevent them from being “concealed”, adding, if convicted, this could be used to pay for the investigation as well as for damages to the victims of the suspects.
