Romanian Court Approves UK Extradition Request for Influencer Andrew Tate and Brother over Rape Allegations

A Romanian court has granted the United Kingdom’s request to extradite influencer Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan Tate over rape and sexual assault allegations. The court’s decision came after separate trial proceedings in Romania regarding Andrew Tate’s rape and human trafficking case. The court ordered the immediate release of the brothers from police custody in Romania.

Andrew Tate, a well-known social media personality with a following of 8.9 million, and his brother were detained in Romania on Monday following an arrest warrant issued by British authorities. The allegations against them stem from a case in the UK dating back to 2012-2015, where four women reported Andrew Tate for sexual violence and physical abuse. However, the Crown Prosecution Service declined to prosecute him, leading the alleged victims to pursue a civil case against him through crowdfunding.

The brothers, both UK and US citizens, vehemently deny the charges and express disappointment that the allegations are being resurrected without substantial new evidence. Their lawyer, Eugen Vidineac, welcomed the court’s decision, stating that it allows the brothers to fully participate in their defense and ensures a transparent legal process.

It remains unclear what Tristan Tate is specifically accused of in this case. Bedfordshire Police in the UK confirmed that they obtained a European arrest warrant and are collaborating with Romanian authorities.

Andrew Tate, who describes himself as a misogynist, has been living in Romania since 2017 and has repeatedly claimed that Romanian prosecutors have no evidence against him. He has also alleged a political conspiracy to silence him. Tate’s lawyer, Constantin Gliga, hopes that the court’s decision will help clarify the legal situation in Romania.

The brothers will remain under judicial control in Romania, preventing them from leaving the country. The case against them is currently in the preliminary chamber stages, where they can challenge the prosecutors’ evidence. No trial date has been set yet.
