Andrew Tate to remain in prison in Romania after bail denied amid sexual assault and exploitation allegations
| Last updated
Controversial influencer Andrew Tate will remain in prison in Romania after his request for bail was denied, according to stunning reports.
Tate and his younger brother, Tristan, were both taken into custody last December amid allegations of sexual assault and exploitation.
Neither of the Tate brothers have been formally charged on suspicion of sexual assault and exploitation, but Andrew’s latest attempt for bail has been denied by a court.
According to reports, Tate appealed the decision in Romania’s capital city of Bucharest after a decision on 21st February to remand him in prison for an additional 30 days.
Former professional kickboxer Andrew will now remain under detention for 30 days, while a decision on Tristan’s bail is expected to be heard on Wednesday.
Following the verdict, a spokesperson for Tate told The Daily Mirror: “Unfortunately, the Romanian judicial system denied Andrew Tate’s request for bail today.
“We are disappointed in this outcome as we had high hopes to see Andrew reunited with his family.
“His legal team will be appealing this decision within the 48hr time frame.”
Both Tate brothers, who shot to stardom over their controversial views, were initially detained for 24 hours last December.
The pair then remained under Romanian authorities’ watch for an additional 30 days, which was then followed up with another 30 days in January.
The extension was then followed up with another 30-day request for detention, which former Big Brother star Andrew lost in his appeal.
Police in Romania seized assets and money, believed to be almost £3.25m, from Tate’s villa amid the allegations levelled against the brothers.
Both of the Tate brothers are also being held by Romanian authorities on suspicion of organised crime and human trafficking.
