Andrew Tate 'charged with rape and human trafficking'

Andrew Tate has been charged with rape, human trafficking and forming an organised crime group.

Additional offences against the controversial influencer include allegations of violence and computer misuse.

Romanian prosecutors are sending the 36-year-old to trial on Tuesday for charges of rape, human trafficking and forming a criminal gang to sexually exploit women.

Prosecutors have said the Tate brothers recruited their victims through false promises of love and falsely claiming to want a relationship or marriage.


As well as cars and other assets, over $384 million worth of crypto have been seized.

On Twitter, the former kickboxer claimed "I'm sure this case has absolutely nothing to do with stealing my wealth."

The trial will not start immediately and could take several years.



Under Romanian law, the case gets sent to the court's preliminary chamber, where a judge has 60 days to inspect the case files to ensure legality.

His brother Tristan is also charged - along with two other associates. All have denied the allegations.

The Tate brothers were first arrested at their home in Bucharest in December.

They were then moved from custody to house arrest in March following a ruling by a Romanian judge.
