The brothers attempted to persuade the judge that they need to be freed since they have kids to take care of and because Andrew has lung problems. The brothers and two other suspects in the human trafficking operation were initially detained for 24 hours before their detention was increased to 30 days. In a prior webcast with Adin Ross, Andrew Tate asserted that he has a total of 10 kids, all born to different women.
In total, 15 high-end vehicles and more than ten homes or property parcels have been confiscated in Romania as of now. According to the nation’s organized crime Diicot agency, the possessions were seized, to stop them from being hidden, to assist pay for the investigation, and to help pay damages to victims if the suspects are found guilty.
Six victims have been identified by the CIICOT as having been sexually exploited and the targets of “acts of physical violence and mental coercion” by the suspected criminal organization.
The victims assert that Tate and his friends bullied and spied on them after luring them with false claims of love. According to a source, several of the women who worked for the alleged sex trafficker were permanently marked with the phrase “owned by Tate.”
Now, prosecutors may ask for up to 180 days of custody. They might have been put under house arrest or barred from leaving the country even if the appeal was successful. It now seems that the brothers would have to go through a lengthy legal procedure which might not be in their favor.
