🔥🔥 Andrew Tate and his brother are denied bail for a third time in Romania

Controversial influencer Andrew Tate, who was detained alongside his brother Tristan on human trafficking and rape charges in Romania in December of last year, has been denied bail after three detainment extensions on Tuesday, his spokesperson confirmed to CBS News. His brother was also denied bail on Wednesday and both will remain in a Romanian prison through at least the end of the month.

“Unfortunately, the Romanian judicial system denied Andrew Tate’s request for bail,” said Mateea Petrescu, head of communications for the Tate brothers.

“We are disappointed in this outcome as we had high hopes to see Andrew reunited with his family. His legal team will be appealing this decision within the 48hr time frame,” Petrescu added.

“[The Court] rejects the request to replace the measure of preventive arrest with the measure of judicial control on bail formulated by the defendant TEA as inadmissible in principle. With the right of appeal within 48 hours of communication,” said the court in a statement provided by Petrescu.

Eugen Vidineac, Tate’s lawyer, said, “At first sight, the court’s decision is illegal because the inadmissibility principle concerns a question of the impossibility of the judicial act, a principle that cannot be applied in this case.”

On Wednesday, Tristan was also denied bail, with a spokesperson telling CBS News, “The court has decided to reject Tristan Tate’s request for bail. Both brothers are disappointed in this outcome, especially Tristan, who is very eager to meet his newborn daughter. 

“However, he will continue to stay with his brother whilst they support each other through this frustrating time,” the spokesperson added. Counsel has up to 48 hours to appeal the decision — which they plan to do, the spokesperson said.

While bail has been denied three times, the brothers have yet to be formally charged. 

Tate is best-known for spreading hate speech, misogyny and violence on social media. He was banned from both Facebook and Instagram in August 2022 for violating Meta’s policies on dangerous organizations and individuals, and has also been banned from posting videos on YouTube. 

He was suspended from Twitter in 2017 for saying that women “bear responsibility” for being sexually assaulted, but was reinstated to the platform after Elon Musk took ownership of the company last year.
