Last week, authorities detained Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan as part of an inquiry into allegations of human trafficking.
Authorities believe that the two individuals, along with two others from Romania, are running an organized crime ring.
Regarding his client’s most recent detention, Andrew Tate’s attorney recently released a cautious statement.
The Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism in Romania issued a statement last Thursday evening without mentioning the Tate brothers. According to the statements, two Romanian and two British were suspected of being engaged in human trafficking.
Andrew and Tristan are accused of misleading the victims by luring them with the intention to develop a romantic connection. According to the statement, the victims were subsequently forced to perform pornographic content under threat of assault.
Eugen Constantin Vidineac is Andrew Tate’s legal representative. He said outside the courtroom that an appeal had been made to overturn the decision to put Andrew Tate in 30 days investigative detention:
“The court has issued an arrest warrant for 30 days. We’ve appealed it, the court will decide after the appeal what the final solution is. We are not at a stage where guilt or innocence is proven, for now we only discuss preventive measures and the opportunity to take certain measures.”
He went on to say:
“In my opinion, in the best possible way, there are no grounds for taking the most drastic preventive measures provided by the criminal procedure court. The judge has a prerogative to pronounce a solution.”
Tate previously prophesized his own arrest
“So, the truth is this – I knew it was coming – I absolutely knew it was coming, because of how orchestrated it was. The only thing – and I’ll state this at the beginning, why I was upset that I was cancelled, was because I expired one of my lives.”
It is a fact that the cancellation had no effect on Tate’s popularity; instead, it increased even more. Tate then talked about the supposed ‘matrix’ then making up false charges and throwing him in jail.
“First, you get cancelled, and then they make up a reason to put you in jail.”
Tate even alluded to him being taken out for good. He said:
“If that fails, they kill you. Now I’m down to my last two lives. So while I’m answering this question, I’m still being careful how I’m answering it.”
