Andrew Tate ‘more serious’ human trafficking charge
Andrew Tate, a self-proclaimed misogynist influencer, and his brother Tristan have been charged with human trafficking in continued form in Romania. The charges are considered more serious than separate counts of trafficking. The Tate brothers and two Romanian women also face charges of rape and forming a criminal gang to exploit women. Since their release from a Bucharest jail three months ago, all four suspects have been under house arrest. Prosecutors allege the group created an organised crime network, recruiting, housing and exploiting women to produce pornographic content to earn money, which they then pocketed. The case is still under investigation, and a trial date is expected to be set later this month.
