Andrew Tate will remain in custody in Romania as a court has upheld the decision to deny his request for bail.
The social media influencer and his brother, Tristan, have been held in custody since December 29, 2022, while authorities investigate allegations of rape, people trafficking, and forming an organized crime group.
The Tate brothers deny the accusations made against them and applied for bail, but their request was denied by a Romanian court earlier this month.
The decision was appealed by Andrew Tate’s lawyers, but it was announced on March 29, 2023, that the court of appeals has upheld the initial ruling.
In addition to the rejection of their bail application, the Tate brothers’ detention has been extended until April 21, 2023.
A spokesperson for the brothers expressed their disappointment at the decision, stating that they had been given the opportunity for the first time to “present all legal guarantees that they are not a flight risk.”
Their legal team argued that Andrew Tate could be placed under house arrest instead of being held in custody, but the judges determined that he posed a flight risk and could potentially influence witnesses or evidence if released.
The Tate brothers’ legal team plans to appeal the decision to extend their detention, with a decision expected to be reached on March 31, 2023.
The spokesperson for the brothers added that they are eager for the truth to come to light, and that their image has been irreparably damaged by the allegations made against them.
Despite his arrest, Andrew Tate’s Twitter account has remained active, with his most recent tweet showing a bald man looking out of a window alongside the caption: “Escape is possible. I simply close my eyes.” Andrew Tate gained a large following online despite posting controversial opinions and advice to his fans.

The Tate brothers’ legal troubles have caused significant damage to their reputation, and they believe that it will take years to rebuild trust and connections with the general public. Their detention and ongoing legal battles have caused substantial material and moral damage, according to their spokesperson.
In conclusion, Andrew Tate’s request for bail has been denied once again, and he will remain in custody in Romania while the investigation into the allegations against him and his brother continues. The legal team plans to appeal the decision to extend their detention, and the court is expected to make a decision on March 31, 2023.
