A Romanian court has ordered influencer Andrew Tate be detained for a further 30-days in a human trafficking and organised crime case.
Tate loses appeal against 30-day detention in Romania
A Romanian court has upheld a second 30-day arrest of the divisive influencer and former professional kickboxer Andrew Tate, who is detained on suspicion of organised crime and human trafficking, an official says.
Tate lost his appeal against a judge’s January 20 decision to extend his arrest a second time for 30 days, Ramona Bolla, a spokeswoman for Romania’s anti-organised crime agency DIICOT, said.
Tate, 36, a British-US citizen who has nearly five million followers on Twitter, arrived at the Bucharest Court of Appeal handcuffed to his brother Tristan, who is held in the same case along with two Romanian women.
The court rejected all four appeals and will remain in custody until February 27 as prosecutors continue investigating the case.
