Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan will remain in jail until February 27 after a Romanian court extended their detention.

Tate, 36, a British-American citizen who has 4.5 million Twitter followers, was arrested on December 29 in Bucharest along with Tristan and two Romanian women on charges of being part of an organized crime group, dealing of people and rape.

Today, a judge granted prosecutors another 30-day extension on their arrest, meaning the four will remain in custody until February 27.

It came after Romanian authorities descended on a Tate-owned complex near Bucharest on Saturday to tow away a fleet of 15 luxury cars and remove 14 designer watches and cash worth an estimated €3.6 million. euros (£3.1 million).

Romania’s organized crime agency said it has identified six victims in the human trafficking case who were subjected to ‘acts of physical violence and mental coercion’ and were sexually exploited by members of the alleged criminal group.

The agency said the victims were lured under pretenses of love and then intimidated, kept under surveillance and subjected to other control tactics while being coerced into acting out in pornography.

Tate, a former professional boxer who has reportedly lived in Romania since 2017, was previously banned from several prominent social media platforms for expressing misogynistic views and hate speech.

After the assets were moved from the Tate complex on Saturday, a post appeared on his Twitter account saying: “Anyone who thinks I’m a human trafficker is really a moron” and that “anyone smart enough to understand the American system is unfair I would be amazed by the injustice of the Romanian system.’
