Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan can be extradited to the UK after Romanian trial


Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan were taken into custody on Monday evening for alleged sexual misconduct incidents from 2012 to 2015.


A Romanian court has granted the United Kingdom's request to extradite Andrew Tate, a controversial influencer. However, the court decided to delay the extradition until his criminal trial in Romania ended.


On Tuesday, the court announced that Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan should be immediately removed from police custody. The Tate brothers were detained for an entire day as the UK arrest warrant was being determined.


According to a recent court of appeals announcement, procedures for executing the arrest warrant and delaying the transfer of the individual until the final decision in the criminal case were discussed at the Bucharest court.


Tate and his brother Tristan were detained on Monday night following allegations of sexual misconduct dating back to 2012 to 2015. The warrant was issued by the London Westminster Magistrates Court. The PR team representing the brothers strongly denied the allegations made against them.


Upon being released from police custody, Tate confidently stated, “We are innocent men, we are very innocent men and in time everyone is going to see that and we are very excited to finish this judicial process and clear our names,” 


The Tate brothers are currently under investigation for allegations of rape and human trafficking, according to UK police, who are working closely with Romanian authorities.


According to the defendant's attorney, Eugen Vidineac, he expressed gratitude for the Bucharest Court of Appeal's choice to delay the extradition of Andrew and Tristan Tate.


"This choice enables the brothers to actively participate in their defence and guarantees a smooth legal process."


An extremely macho lifestyle


Tate, who gained a large following by promoting an ultra-masculine lifestyle criticised as "toxic," faced charges in Romania in June for rape, human trafficking, and leading a criminal group to exploit women. They have denied the allegations.


Ever since, the case has been under consideration by the preliminary chamber of the Bucharest court, which is tasked with deciding whether the trial can proceed. Due to the backlog in Romanian courts, a decision is still pending.


To prevent the Tate brothers from fleeing the country or interfering with evidence, they were held in police custody from late December 2022 until April of the following year during the ongoing criminal investigation.


They were confined to their homes until August. At that moment, they were put under judicial control, a less strict preventive measure that permitted them to freely move around as long as they checked in with the police regularly. They cannot leave the country.


In 2022, "Andrew Tate" was among the top trending searches on Google. Many adults remained unaware of him until 2023.


Tate became widely known for his controversial Twitter outburst directed at Greta Thunberg, an advocate for climate change.


In December, he reached out to her after posting a photo of himself refuelling a Bugatti, asking for her email to share a detailed list of his car collection and their significant emissions.


Thunberg's response, which referenced his lack of confidence, went viral with over 570,000 retweets.


Andrew rose to fame as a prominent figure in the influencer industry due to his videos, which featured controversial content alongside tips for achieving success.
