BOTH Andrew and Tristan Tate look set to remain in custody in Romania following their latest appeal.
Having appointed Tina Glandian to their legal team, the pair were hoping to be tasting freedom, but their second appeal has been rejected.
When will Andrew and Tristan Tate be released from prison?
The judge decided to detain both Tate brothers and their personal assistants Georgiana Naghel and Luana Radu on December 29, 2023.
Tate’s representative Avocat Vidineac Eugen Constatin stated outside the courthouse after their initial arrest that they had appealed the decision to not grant bail to the influencers while the investigation continues.
Mr Constatin told reporters: “The court has issued an arrest warrant for 30 days. We’ve appealed it, the court will decide after the appeal what the final solution is.”
The Tate’s lost an appeal against their 30-day detention in January 2023.
By request of Romanian organized crime agency DIIDCOT, the brothers and their two accomplices are to remain in prison until February 27, 2023 whilst the investigation continues.
Now their second appeal has been dismissed, hopes of an early release have disappeared.
Andrew Tate has been very vocal about his experiences while behind bars.
Romanian authorities have also seized many of the brothers assets as part of the ongoing investigation.
Why were Andrew and Tristan Tate arrested?
The four suspects were initially held on suspicion of rape, human trafficking, and organized crime offences for 24 hours following raids on his villa and other properties.
It is important to point out that the group have not been formally charged yet, police in Bucharest are insisting that their investigation is ongoing and that all four remain suspects.
Romanian authorities have since said that, having identified six alleged victims, that their pair had subjected them to “acts of physical violence and mental coercion” as well as “sexual exploitation”.
They are alleged to have recruited and exploited women by coercing them into “forced labour… and pornographic acts with a view to producing and disseminating such material” online to “obtain substantial financial benefits”.
Tate, who previously claimed to be a “trillionaire” was in fact living in a property he did not own in surroundings much different to the image he portrays online.
What will happen when Andrew and Tristan Tate are released?
With authorities having dismissed their second appeal against the charges, Andrew and Tristan Tate look set to remain in custody until February 27, 2023, at the earliest.
The investigation into the charges alleged against the pair will continue during this time.
Should these be upheld, it is important to point out that they are extremely serious and would no doubt carry hefty sentences if proven.
Until any of the four are formally charged, it is very difficult to say what happens on their release and the terms they will have to adhere to.
