Ex-kickboxer and social media influencer Andrew Tate has been arrested in Romania on charges of human trafficking, rape, and forming an organized crime group.
According to the reports, Andrew and his brother Tristan have been detained in Romania on the suspicion of involvement with a crime group which exploits girls for adult videos. The brothers are being investigated for human trafficking and rape and will then be taken to DIICOT (Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism) for the questioning session.
Andrew Tate who is just 36 rose to fame this year for his sexist and misogynistic views that were filmed led from his luxury villa by police following a raid on Thursday. His younger brother Tristan, 34, was also arrested along with two further suspects, with all four being held for 24 hours in Bucharest.
According to the prosecutors, “The four suspects … appear to have created an organized crime group with the purpose of recruiting, housing and exploiting women by forcing them to create pornographic content meant to be seen on specialized websites for a cost.”
Prosecutor also confirmed that they would have ‘gained important sums of money’.
Remember here one thing Andrew Tate got into a Twitter clash with activist Greta Thunberg, 19, earlier this week, when he bragged about his 33 cars and their emissions in a tweet.
In a clap back video to Thunberg, Tate is seen receiving his pizza order from a Romanian fast food chain, which served as proof to authorities, who suspected that the latter was in the country.
After spotting the ‘Jerry’s Pizza’ box in the video, the officials were sure of his presence in Romania which led to his arrest.
