Monday, 16 January 2023 – Andrew Tate has denied being involved in human trafficking.
The controversial internet personality was arrested in December 2022 in Romania alongside his brother and two assistants.
Over the weekend, Romanian authorities said they have seized nearly $4 million worth of assets belonging to Tate over the past week as he and his brother are investigated on allegations of human trafficking and rape.
Video published by Reuters on Saturday, Jan. 14, shows Romanian authorities at a compound emblazoned with a large “Tate” sign seizing several high-value vehicles, including a Rolls Royce, a BMW, and a Mercedes Benz.
The seizures were carried out on orders from prosecutors of the Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism, according to ANABI.
After his assets were seized, Tate, who is still in custody in Romania, took to Twitter to insist he is innocent of the accusations.
He tweeted: “Anyone who believes I am a human trafficker may as well go and take their 10th vaccine.
“There are 0 victims, 0 proof of any crime in our case file.
“They have arrested me to ‘look’ for evidence, Which they will not find because it doesn’t exist.”
