The former kickboxer Andrew Tate has been held in detention ever since his arrest on December 29th, and a court in Romania has just announced a third extension of his sentence.
The controversial internet personality who rose to fame on social media was arrested along with his brother Tristan and two other women from his residence in the capital city of Romania. They have been charged with a variety of offenses, including money laundering, rape, human trafficking, and organized crime.
Luana Radu, 32, and Georgiana Naghel, 28, have been identified as the two women who were arrested from the Tate residence. They were arrested for assisting the Tate brothers in committing crimes related to human trafficking as well as other charges.
While Georgiana was a model in the past, Luana is said to have formerly held the position of a police officer, according to a number of different sources.
A Romanian court again extended the detention of misogynist Andrew Tate and his brother until at least the end of March.

Three times now, Tate, the self-described misogynist, has requested a court in Bucharest, Romania, to release him; each time, the court has declined.
According to new information provided by Romona Bolla, a representative of the Romanian anti-organized crime organization DIICOT, Tate’s imprisonment period has been extended for the third time, and he will now spend the next thirty days in jail.
A judge in Romania has said that the brothers will remain in jail for another 30 days due to Tate’s “particular dangerousness” to exploit any woman for his own gain. The court found that the women Andrew preys upon may suffer physical and psychological harm as a result of his exploitation of them.

Meanwhile, on behalf of the Tates, an attorney representing the brothers named Eugen Vidineac shared with the press that Tate and his brother will appeal against the court for keeping them in prison without any solid evidence. Vidineac also claimed that his clients are innocent of all of the charges that have been brought against them.
Tina Glandian, a consultant for the Tate brothers, has expressed her support for the idea of filing suit, saying, “The fact that [the Tates] are incarcerated right now is not a cause for them not to pursue their legal rights.”
Last week, the British influencer tweeted that he has been keeping tabs on everyone who has stood up for him while he was in jail, as well as those who are frightened to do so like cowards despite knowing his innocence.
