Romanian court rejects Andrew Tate’s appeal for release: Reports

A Romanian court has rejected the latest application for bail by Andrew Tate.

The controversial social media influencer and his brother Tristan have been detained since December.

They are being investigated on charges of rape, people trafficking and forming an organised crime group. Both have denied wrongdoing.

Mr Tate’s spokeswoman said the ruling was “disappointing” and that his legal team would appeal.

Tate appeared at a bail hearing which he hoped would result in him being released from prison and placed under house arrest after nearly three months behind bars.

However, his application was rejected by the judge this afternoon.

“The influencer said he was ‘disappointed’ by the decision as he had ‘high hopes’ to be reunited with his family,”

before adding that his lawyers will be appealing the decision

His legal team will be appealing this decision within the 48hr time frame.

Following the judge’s decision, Tate’s lawyer Eugen Vidineac 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.”


Tate’s brother Tristan will attend his bail hearing tomorrow.

Their two female accomplices, LuanaRadu, 32 – a former police officer in Bucharest – and Georgiana Naghel, 28 – a model believed to have been dating Tate for almost a year – will also attend bail hearings tomorrow and on Thursday respectively. None of the four have yet been formally charged.

In Romania, it is rare for defendants under preventative arrest for serious crimes to request posting bail. More common are requests to be placed under other judicial conditions such as house arrest or geographical restrictions.

Lawyers for Mr Tate have long argued that keeping him in preventative custody is unnecessarily harsh, when other judicial options – such as house arrest – are available.
