A Romanian Judge just ruled that Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan must stay detained until the end of March. This is the third time the popular, albeit controversial, influencers hearing has been pushed back. The brothers were arrested in December on suspicion of human trafficking, rape and forming an organized crime group. Both brothers deny the charges and say evidence will prove their evidence.
The Tristan Brothers say that recent leaked chats prove their innocence. The brothers have provided the proof the Judge asked for and instead of releasing him, he extended their confinement. (Breaking Through was unable to verify the chats).
The Tate brothers have always said evidence will prove their innocence. They are the only ones who have tangible proof of what happened and that proof shows they're innocent. They're right.
Evidence provided by police and investigators so far has been circumstantial. Romanian officials are basing their case on the testimony of two alleged victims. After the chats showing that the case has been a set up all the way along, the accusers clapped back. They say that the chats don't prove anything and that they were playing along with the Tate's until they were able to escape.
The Tate brothers will sit in a Romanian jail for at least the next 30 days.
Breaking Through does not release assault victims names. Breaking Through advocates for a victim's right to report. Breaking Through also believes people are innocent until proven guilty.
