Former kickboxer Andrew Tate locked in Romanian prison for organized crime, human trafficking and rape

Andrew Tate, a kickboxer turned internet influencer, has been detained in a Romanian prison on various accusations. Tate is an extremely controversial personality for his hate speech and misogynistic statements on multiple social media platforms.

Last night, he was taken into custody by the Romanian police as part of an investigation into human trafficking and rape.

Tate, who has been living in Romania for five years, has been the subject of police suspicion since last April. It is unclear whether he was living alone, but his brother Tristan, as well as two Romanian residents from his house, were also arrested. On Thursday, Romanian prosecutors confirmed Tate and his brother’s detention on the aforementioned allegations.

“The four suspects … appear to have created an organised crime group with the purpose of recruiting, housing and exploiting women by forcing them to create pornographic content meant to be seen on specialised websites for a cost,” prosecutors have told to news agency Reuters.

Multiple images and videos from major news outlets show that Tate’s home was searched late at night, and he was later detained. Tate clearly had many guns and other sharp weapons in his possession, according to the videos released. Although few details have been released, it has been confirmed that he and his brother will remain in police detention for at least another day.

Andrew Tate used to be a kickboxer before becoming an internet sensation. He was highly successful in his kickboxing career. He began his kickboxing career at the age of 15 and went on to win 76 of his 85 fights. He knocked out his opponents in the ring 23 times to win a fight.. He’s also a four-time IKSA kickboxing world champion.

Tate had a Twitter spat with climate activist Greta Thunberg the day before his detention. Many individuals believe that the detention is the result of that clash. Tate later released a video claiming innocence and that the arrest was a prank played on him by his enemies.
