Andrew Tate releases bizarre video online following release from jail in Romania
| Last updated
Controversial social media personality and former kickboxer Andrew Tate has released a bizarre video on Twitter following his release from jail in Romania.
The 36-year-old and his younger brother Tristan were arrested back in December in Romania for alleged human trafficking, rape and crime gang offences. However, Friday saw the Tate brothers released from their incarceration in Bucharest following a verdict by Romanian judges.
Having tweeted ":)", before writing another message: "Email regarding my release will be sent in 24 hours. God is great" the four-time kickboxing world champion followed up his first social media posts since his release by posting an odd video pacing whilst smoking a cigar, captioned with a somewhat cryptic message:
'Since last year ive been in 24 hour lockdown. No yard time.
'Pacing a 3metre cell with zero electronics or outside contact. Absolute clarity of mind. Real thoughts. Real plans.
'One hour home and I cant stand my phone.
'Some habits die hard.
'We must defeat Shaytan.'
Prior to releasing the video, the 36-year-old had broken his silence to reporters, releasing a statement outside of his residency where he claimed 'justice will be served.'
"The judges who heard us today, they were very attentive, they listened to us and they let us know, so I have absolute respect for them," Tate told reporters.
"I have no resentment in my heart for the country of Romania over anybody else, I just believe in the truth. I believe in god and I think that the fire of the truth will destroy all lies and anybody who lies over a long enough time frame will feel regret.
"I truly believe that justice will be served in the end, there is zero per cent chance of me being found guilty of something I have not done.
"I maintain my absolute innocence and I think most people understand this. I look forward to being home, so thank you very much everyone."
Asked what his plans were following his release, he defiantly replied: "When I was in jail I did 7,417 push-ups, I would like to get to 10,000 before the end of the weekend.
"I will focus on the push-ups and I will read the Quran. Thank you."
