Andrew Tate is set to find out today whether he will be sent back to prison after appearing in a Romanian court with his brother on charges of human trafficking and rape.
Tristan Tate and two Romanian women – Luana Radu and Georgiana Nagel – were also charged in the case, which was acquitted on Tuesday.
As he arrived at a Bucharest court earlier today – passing through a media scrum and flanked by bodyguards – he declared: ‘I believe in justice and God’.
Romania’s Anti-Organized Crime Prosecution Unit (DIICOT) alleged that the defendants formed a criminal organization and sexually exploited several victims.
The brothers deny all charges, but face years in prison if convicted. The timing of the trial is unclear, but it could take several years.

Tate and his brother left court after the 90-minute hearing, the more famous of the two thanking their supporters ‘we have all over the world.’
‘We receive thousands of messages of support every day. We are not the first rich and wealthy men to find ourselves in this situation, unfortunately it happens a lot. This is my home and I look forward to being found innocent.’
When asked by MailOnline if he had received the ‘justice’ he had hoped for, he shrugged his shoulders before leaving with his brother and the entourage in the Porsche that drove them away.
A decision will be made later today on whether to send the men back to prison pending trial.
The pair arrived earlier in the day for a preliminary hearing where a judge will decide whether to proceed to a full trial.
Flanked by media and flanked by bodyguards, Tate made his remarks about ‘God and justice’ as he entered the court building where several TV camera crews saw the melee.
Tate took to social media last night to express his anger at the accusation, claiming it was issued as part of a larger conspiracy against him orchestrated by ‘Matrix’.
In his typical chauvinistic style, the 36-year-old released a video of himself sitting in a dark room smoking a cigar, captioned ‘What’s next?’, soon followed by another video showing a collection of news clips reporting sexual assault allegations. Being eliminated against many high-profile men.
In the first 13-minute clip, Tate attacks the media for what he says is unfair treatment – and thus, he claims, ‘the matrix’ is working against him.
When addressing his followers, Tate often referred to the concept of ‘The Matrix’ as a global conspiracy trying to control the world (a reference to the sci-fi movie franchise of the same name that depicts a dystopian world where humanity is unwittingly controlled by a computer program controlled by machines). trapped inside).
Tate frames herself to her followers as someone who will help free people from this ‘control’.
In the latest clip, he claims he has been ‘offered to sell my soul many times.’
He said: ‘I want everyone at home to understand. You won’t become the most Googled person in the world, especially among a group of young people with money to spend, without very large companies and corporations becoming extremely interested in you.
‘I’ve been offered $50-$60 million by companies I’m not going to name. All I had to do was shut up. Shut up, take the money. Wear was stupid. Wave around the stupid drink, whatever. And continue to agree with what the Matrix says regardless of my own personal feelings, my personal opinions and beliefs.
‘And I refuse to do that, I refuse to sell my soul,’ he added.
He says that if he had ‘sold his soul’ to a large corporation, he doubts ‘this level of Matrix attack would ever have happened to me.’ If he ‘sold his soul’ to a corporation, that corporation would ‘talk to the media’ which would then ‘consider me an ally.’
Surrounded by the media, Tate made his remarks about ‘God and justice’ as he entered the courthouse where several TV camera crews saw the melee.

Tate hit out at the accusation on social media last night, claiming it was issued as part of a larger conspiracy against him orchestrated by ‘Matrix’ in a video (pictured).
Demanding answers about what happens next, Tate suggests he hopes to press charges against him in the UK.
Earlier this month, a fourth British woman claimed she was sexually assaulted by the influencer, alleging he choked her until she passed out.
The 30-year-old joined a civil claim for damages against Tate, while three other women said in April they wanted to start proceedings.
‘I don’t know why, I haven’t done anything wrong,’ he says in the video. ‘Something is appearing from somewhere.’ He then went on to say that he had ‘very high-level friends and whistleblowers who were making sure of exactly that.’
He then said he hoped the Romanian government was going to charge him, which happened before the video was released. It’s unclear if the video was recorded before the indictment or if Tate was trying to make it appear that way.
‘I truly believe that, even with a Romanian-controlled justice system or a Matrix-controlled justice system, I will be found innocent,’ Tate told the audience, ‘because I know the case file, I know what’s in it.’
He then predicts that the trial could take up to two years and that he is charged because ‘that’s how the Matrix works.’
Along with the video – which has been viewed more than four million times – Tate also placed a link to his website urging his followers to buy or donate Andrew Tate merchandise.
He also tweeted bizarre messages claiming to be ‘back’.
‘In the depths of despair, a song shapes reality. Top G. Top G. Top G. An embodiment of virtue and hope out of chaos. A presence that shakes the world, champions the oppressed and dispels darkness. He’s back, he wrote in a message posted Wednesday morning.
Accompanying the news video of high-profile men being acquitted of sexual assault charges, she wrote: ‘Men. This is not about me. It’s not about whether you like me or not. This is all about us. Today it’s me.
‘Tomorrow you. No one is safe from this lie.’
Tate’s brother Tristan also wrote on Twitter, ‘They have completed the investigation! Progress at last. These 15 months have been hell for everyone I care about.
‘If I were the police I would have ended the ‘investigation’ a week later when the two girls were caught indulging in lies and discussing future financial and fame gains.
This ‘file’ will ultimately be in the hands of the judge.
He added: ‘It means the evidence will eventually be reviewed.
‘So far no judge has looked at the evidence and even tried to determine ‘guilty’ or ‘not guilty’. The case was in the hands of investigators who were fighting to keep me in jail so they could ‘continue their investigation’.
‘Terrible I know. But the good part begins now.’
Tate’s brother Tristan and two Romanian women were also charged in the case, with the four (pictured handcuffed in February) due to appear in court at around 9am GMT today.
Police arrested Tate and three other suspects in late December last year and placed them under house arrest at the end of March.
‘While this news is undoubtedly speculative, we welcome the opportunity it presents to demonstrate their innocence and vindicate their reputation,’ Tate’s media team said in response to the allegations.
They added the case ‘allows us to present an extensive body of evidence, painstakingly collected and prepared over time, which will undoubtedly substantiate the brothers’ claim of innocence’.
Romanian authorities have ordered the defendants to remain under house arrest.
DIICOT prosecutors accused four people of forming an organized criminal group in early 2021 with the aim of committing human trafficking crimes on the territory of Romania, but also in other countries, such as the United States and the United Kingdom, .
They said the organized crime group sexually exploited the seven victims ‘through physical violence and psychological pressure’.
DIICOT prosecutors said the victims were ‘forced to engage in pornographic acts with the aim of producing and disseminating such material through social media platforms.’
Prosecutors ordered the seizure of nearly £10m worth of Tate Brothers’ assets, including 15 high-end cars (pictured), 14 luxury watches and around £440,000 held in cryptocurrencies, the firm said in a statement.
They added that one of the defendants – through physical violence and emotional pressure – forced a victim to ‘repeatedly engage in sexual intercourse’ in March 2022.
A source close to the investigation told news agency AFP that the suspect is Andrew Tate. A Tate spokesman declined to comment to AFP, saying they would ‘provide further details’ later.
Prosecutors ordered the seizure of nearly £10 million worth of Tate brothers’ assets, including 15 high-priced cars, 14 luxury watches and about £440,000 in cryptocurrencies, the agency said in a statement.
The brothers live in a high security gated compound in Bucharest.
It is claimed that the seven victims, who were brought and held on the outskirts of Bucharest, were recruited through the ‘loveboy system’.
Prosecutors said the brothers misled them with fake feelings of love and plans for a long-term partnership.
As part of the investigation, Romanian police raided several properties linked to the Tate brothers and seized assets, including a collection of luxury cars.
A dual citizen of the US and Britain, former kickboxer Andrew Tate moved to Romania a few years ago after starting a webcam business in the UK.
In 2016, Tate appeared on Britain’s ‘Big Brother’ reality television show but was eliminated after a video surfaced showing him assaulting a woman.
He then returned to social media platforms to air his divisive views. He currently has 6.9 million followers on Twitter.
Police arrested Tate and three other suspects (pictured) in late December last year and put them under house arrest at the end of March.
With tips on how to succeed, along with misogynistic and sometimes violent maxims, his videos have made him one of the world’s most famous influencers.
Tate said in a 2021 interview, ‘I’m absolutely sexist, and I’m absolutely a misogynist’.
Last week, a British law firm served legal papers on Andrew Tate along with four women threatening to sue him in an English court for sexual assault.
A statement from the law firm described the women’s allegations as ‘violent rape, serious physical assault and controlling and coercive behaviour.’
