Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan complained today that authorities are “trying to steal our cars and money” as they were escorted to Romania’s police station.
Tate, 36, who was arrested with Tristan last month on charges of human trafficking, rape and forming an organized crime group to exploit women, claimed he had “done nothing wrong” when he was seen from a police van as the anti- organized crime was ushered into headquarters in Bucharest.
Both brothers were handcuffed. Tristan whined, “They have no evidence, they’re trying to steam my cars, my money, that’s why I’m in jail.”
He was followed by Tate, who shouted ‘there is no justice in Romania’ while insisting there was ‘no evidence’ that he was exploiting girls and forcing them to create pornographic content on webcams.

Tristan, handcuffed as he was brought into the building by a police officer, whined, “They have no evidence, they’re trying to steam my cars, my money, that’s why I’m in jail”
The uproar came after Tate moaned about the state of his cell, claiming it was “infested with cockroaches, lice and bedbugs” and “has no light.”
It comes as a Romanian court ruled last week that the brothers will remain in jail until February 27 after prosecutors requested an additional 30-day extension of their arrest.
Tate and Tristan, both in black, were escorted from a police van today to Romania’s Directorate for Investigation into the Build-up of Organized Crime and Terrorism.
Tate turned to reporters waiting outside the building and insisted, “They know we didn’t do anything wrong. The file is empty.’
“Of course it is unjust, unfortunately there is no justice in Romania,” he added as he was escorted to headquarters.
When asked “have you hurt any girls,” Tate didn’t turn around and say, “Of course not.”
Tate is accused of recruiting dozens of women and keeping them under house arrest “as prisoners” while forcing them to create pornographic content online on webcams.
The alleged sex trafficking victims of Tate and Tristan have alleged that the brothers allegedly referred to them as “slaves” and tricked them into becoming webcam porn workers with vows of marriage.

Today Tate and Tristan, both dressed in black, were escorted from a police van to the building of the Romanian Directorate for the Investigation of Organized Crime and Terrorism.

The brothers are now in jail until Feb. 27, and Tate sent a groaning message to followers of his website titled, “My first email from jail.”
He said he would continue to send incoherent emails, which the self-declared misogynist called his “daily lessons from unjust imprisonment.”
Tate complained, “They’re trying to break me. Thrown into a cell with no light.
‘Cockroaches, lice and bed bugs are my only friends at night.
“When the guards take me to and from the courtroom, I remain absolutely respectful. They try to pour hatred into my heart.’
Tate also mentions the prison guards several times, claiming they “know I’m innocent” and “just doing their job” because “they have families to feed.”
Tate’s Twitter feed has continued to post, though it’s unclear if the tweets are from him or one of his representatives.
He recently tweeted that he is now allowed to receive mail and encouraged his followers to email him.
Tate also continued his whining on Twitter, with a tweet that read, “In the dark silence of solitary confinement, there is almost no sound. Pray for me, I can hear you.’
He also claimed, “the great revolutionaries of every generation suffer from unfair imprisonment.”

Tate was arrested last month along with his younger brother Tristan and two Romanian women, Luana Radu and Georgiana Naghel, and held for 30 days. They deny any allegation.
He is accused of recruiting dozens of women and forcing them to create online pornographic content on webcams.
Romanian prosecutors allege that Tate recruited the women on social media platforms and then lured them to his camp in Bucharest by falsely professing his love and intention to marry them.
Romanian authorities seized 15 luxury cars from Tate’s villa on the outskirts of the capital, as well as 14 designer watches and cash worth an estimated 3.6 million euros (£3.17 million).
The British-American citizen currently has 4.7 million followers on Twitter, having previously been banned from several social media platforms for expressing misogynistic views and hate speech.
The court in Bucharest has now extended his detention until February 27.
Tate was furious with the decision and told his lawyers he is “arrested for a crime of opinion.”
Constantin Ioan Gliga, one of the defense lawyers, told the Romanian news outlet Gandul: “We continue to insist that the Tate brothers are practically being arrested at this point for a crime of opinion, for what they did at some point in the online environment and not because of what they actually did in their private lives.’
Gliga added that the decision was “unjustified and totally exaggerated.”
The judge’s ruling came after all four — Tate, Tristan, Luana Radu and Georgiana Naghel — lost an appeal earlier this month to a Bucharest court that ruled to uphold a judge’s Dec. previous decision to extend their arrest from December 24. hours to 30 days.
