Andrew Tate, the controversial influencer, has been charged in Romania with rape and human trafficking, and forming an organised crime group to sexually exploit women.
His brother Tristan and two associates also face charges. Though they all have denied the allegations.
As reported, Romanian prosecutors on Tuesday sent Andrew Tate, his brother Tristan and two other suspects to jail, while the trial will not start immediately.
Under Romanian law, the case will be sent to the court’s preliminary chamber, where a judge has 60 days to inspect the case files to ensure legality.
As reported, the Tate brothers and two Romanian female suspects were put under house arrest pending a criminal investigation of alleged abuses committed against seven women.
The four suspects were held in police custody from 29 December last year until 31 March before a Bucharest court put them under house arrest.
Andrew Tate has also been charged with raping one of the alleged victims, while his brother Tristan has been charged with instigating others to violence.
A spokesperson for Andrew Tate said: “We embrace the opportunity it presents to demonstrate their innocence.”
Who is Andrew Tate
Andrew Tate’s TikTok account racked up about 11.6 billion views before it was taken down.
British-American former kickboxer became infamous for his viral online rants preaching male dominance, female submission, and the pursuit of wealth.
last year, Tate shot to prominence for leading many to voice alarm about his malign influence on his predominantly young, male audience.
He had been previously banned from every major social media platform until Elon Musk reinstated his Twitter account after taking over the company.
Twitter banned him for saying women should “bear some responsibility” for being sexually assaulted.
Tate was arrested last year in December after inadvertently tipping off Romanian authorities of his presence in Romania with his response video to Greta Thunberg.
