Andrew Tate Faces Rape And Human Trafficking Charges in Romania

Authorities in Romania announced Tuesday that Andrew Tate had been charged with rape, human trafficking, and creating a criminal group to exploit women s*xually.

The former professional kickboxer and disgraced influencer were indicted alongside his brother Tristan Tate and two female Romanian citizens.

It comes after the brothers were arrested in December and have been in Jail or under house arrest since then.

The Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT) of Romania charged Tate and his co-defendants with forming a criminal group in 2021 “in order to commit the crime of human trafficking on the territory of Romania, but also in other countries, such as the United States of America and Great Britain.”

According to the announcement, the crime syndicate deceived seven victims with “the intention to establish a marriage/cohabitation relationship and the existence of real feelings of love.”
