SOCIAL media influencer Andrew Tate along with his brother, Tristan was charged in Romania with rape, human trafficking and forming a criminal gang to exploit women, prosecutors said on Tuesday. Two Romanian women were also indicted in a court in Romania’s capital, Bucharest.

In an official statement, the Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism alleged the four defendants formed a criminal group in 2021 “in order to commit the crime of human trafficking in Romania as well as the United States and Britain.”

According to the agency, seven female victims were misled and brought to Romania, where they were subjected to sexual exploitation and physical violence by Andrew Tate and his gang. One defendant is also accused of raping a woman twice in March 2022.

Andrew Tate, who is also a former professional kickboxer, has been residing in Romania since 2017 and has repeatedly claimed Romanian prosecutors have no evidence and alleged the case is a political conspiracy designed to silence him.

Mateea Petrescu, who is Tate’s spokesperson said that the two brothers were “prepared to demonstrate their innocence and vindicate their reputation.” The Tate brothers will now attend a hearing in Bucharest on Wednesday morning.

“Tate’s legal team are prepared to cooperate fully with the appropriate authorities, presenting all necessary evidence to exonerate the brothers and expose any misinterpretations or false accusations,” Petrescu said.

The Tate brothers, who are dual British-U.S. citizens, and the two Romanian suspects were detained in late December in Bucharest. The brothers were moved to house arrest following an appeal in March this year.

Andrew Tate boosted a following of over 6 million followers on Twitter. He was banned from TikTok, YouTube and Facebook for hate speech and his misogynistic comments, including that women should bear responsibility for getting sexually assaulted.

The prosecutors in the case have also ordered to confiscate Andrew Tate’s luxury assets, including 15 luxury cars, luxury watches and about $3 million in cryptocurrency, the agency’s statement said.
