Andrew Tate, his brother Tristan, and two others have been charged in Romania for their involvement in human trafficking and rape. A sex trafficking network is suspected of operating in Romania, which led to the filing of these allegations.
The British-American kickboxing promoter and online celebrity Tate has been accused of exploiting his status to recruit women to work as prostitutes in Romania. Several of the women have accused him of rape.
Tristan, Tate’s brother, has been charged with aiding in the operation of the prostitution business. The two other defendants are charged with facilitating the women’s recruitment and transportation.
Romanian prosecutors made the indictment public on Tuesday. The investigation is continuing, and further charges may be brought, they added.
All of the allegations against Tate have been refuted by him. He claims he is the target of a “witch hunt” and that the charges against him are “completely false.”
The trial against Tate is set to start on September 6. If he is found guilty, he may spend up to 15 years in jail.
Tate has been charged with assault and violence in addition to human trafficking and rape. The year 2019 finds him accused of an assault on a guy at a Bucharest pub.
Tate is a divisive character. He has a history of misogynistic and violent behavior allegations. For breaking their rules, he was also kicked out of both Twitter and YouTube.
Human trafficking in Romania has been more publicized because of the allegations brought against Tate. Many people from the nation fall prey to the sex trafficking industry.
The Romanian government has promised to take action against the scourge of human trafficking. The government’s apparent seriousness about the situation is shown by the indictment of Tate and his friends.
