Romanian authorities have confiscated goods worth 18 millions lei ($3.95m) as part of a criminal investigation into human trafficking. Andrew Tate, an internet divisive, was detained and arrested.
Over the past week, 29 movable assets were placed under administration by the National Agency for the Management of Seized Assets. These included luxury vehicles, watches and cash in different currencies. The announcement was made late Saturday, 14 January.
A reporter for Reuters witnessed Tate take several cars from Bucharest’s compound and store them.
Andrew Tate, his brother and two women suspects were arrested in December. They are accused of creating a criminal gang that sexually exploited six women. They denied any wrongdoing.
The 30-day warrant was challenged by the detained. The Bucharest court of appeals denied the challenge and declared that they should be kept under police custody.
Andrew Tate was once a contestant on the UK reality TV series Big Brother. His hate speech and misogynistic remarks are well-known.
His comments were a reason he was banned from all the major social media platforms. His Twitter account was reactivated in November, after Elon Musk purchased the platform.
Tate, who is British and American national, stated that women are partially responsible for being raped and that men have sole responsibility.
