Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan will remain in prison until February 27 after a Romanian court extended their detention.

Tate, 36, a British-American citizen who has 4.5 million Twitter followers, was arrested on December 29 in Bucharest along with Tristan and two Romanian women for membership in an organized criminal group, human trafficking and rape.

A judge today granted prosecutors a further 30-day extension to their arrest, meaning they will remain in custody until February 27.

It comes after Romanian authorities descended on a Tate-owned resort near Bucharest on Saturday to tow a fleet of 15 luxury cars and remove 14 designer watches and cash worth an estimated $3.6 million. euros (£3.1 million).

Romania’s Organized Crime Agency said it had identified six victims in the human trafficking case who were subjected to “acts of physical abuse and mental coercion” and were sexually exploited by members of the alleged criminal group.

The agency said the victims were lured into lovemaking and then bullied, kept under surveillance and subjected to other controlling tactics while being coerced into performing in pornography.

Tate, a former professional kickboxer who has reportedly lived in Romania since 2017, has previously been banned from various prominent social media platforms for expressing misogynistic views and hate speech.

After the assets were moved from the Tate compound on Saturday, a message appeared on its Twitter account, which read: ‘Anyone who thinks I am a human trafficker is truly a moron’ and that ‘anyone pretty intelligent to understand the American system is unfair would be blown away by the unfairness of the Romanian system.
