‘No justice in Romania’: Andrew Tate says his criminal case is ’empty’

Controversial influencer Andrew Tate, who is jailed in Romania on sex trafficking and rape allegations, blasted the criminal case prosecutors are building against him on Wednesday – saying their case was “empty”.

“They know we didn’t do anything wrong,” Tate told reporters as he was escorted by law enforcement from a police van to the offices of DIICOT, Romania’s Directorate of Investigations. on organized crime and terrorism.

“This folder is completely empty. Of course, it’s unfair, unfortunately there is no justice in Romania,” he continued.

When asked if he’s harmed women, the self-proclaimed misogynist replied, “Of course not.”

Prosecutors were conducting forensic searches of digital devices on Wednesday, hoping to obtain new evidence in the case.

Tate, 36, and her brother Tristan, 34, were arrested in Bucharest along with two Romanian women on December 29 on allegations of rape and forming a criminal network that exploited women to create pornographic material.

A judge ruled last week that the brothers would remain in court for another month, keeping them in custody until February 27.

Romanian prosecutors say the Tate brothers recruited victims by seduction, often pretending to want a relationship or marriage with their victims before taking them to properties on the outskirts of Bucharest.

There, victims would be intimidated and physically abused while being coerced into producing pornographic content for popular social media sites.

No formal charges were filed, so neither brother pleaded. They unsuccessfully appealed their detention earlier this month.

The former kickboxer moved his now shuttered sex cam operation to Romania in 2017 as he was investigated for a 2015 rape in the UK. He previously said he moved to Romania because he liked living in countries where corruption was accessible to everyone.

The UK rape case, which he vehemently denied, was dropped in 2019 without charge.

When they were arrested in December, raids revealed stacks of cash, designer watches and even weapons, including guns, a hatchet and swords from the Tate brothers’ properties. A few weeks later, the Romanian authorities seized their fleet of luxury cars.

“There is no evidence against me,” Tristian Tate told reporters on Wednesday. “The authorities are planning to steal my cars and steal my money. That’s why I’m in jail.

Authorities said the seizure was to prevent the sale or concealment of the assets.
