Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan today complained that authorities were “trying to steal our cars and money” as they were escorted into Romania’s police headquarters.
Tate, 36, who was arrested with Tristan last month on suspicion of human trafficking, rape and forming an organized crime group to exploit women, claimed he “did nothing wrong” when he was led into the Bucharest building .
Both brothers were handcuffed. Tristan whined, “They have no evidence, they’re trying to steal my cars, my money, that’s why I’m in jail.”
He was followed by Tate, who yelled “there is no justice in Romania” while insisting there was “no evidence” he had exploited girls and forced them to create pornographic content on webcams.

Tristan, who was handcuffed when 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 bleachers came after Tate moaned about the condition of his cell, claiming it was crawling with “roaches, lice and bed bugs” and “had no lights”.
A Romanian court ruled last week that the brothers will remain in prison until February 27 after prosecutors asked for a further 30-day extension to their detention.
Tate and Tristan, both dressed in black, were escorted by a police car to the building of the Romanian Directorate of Investigation into Organized Crime and Terrorism today.
Addressing reporters waiting outside the building, the former professional kickboxer insisted, “You know we did nothing wrong. The case file is empty.’
“Of course it’s unfair, unfortunately there is no justice in Romania,” he added as he was escorted to headquarters.
When asked “Have you hurt any girls?” the controversial influencer didn’t turn around as he replied, “Of course not.”
He is accused of recruiting scores of women and keeping them under house arrest “like prisoners” while forcing them to create online pornographic content via webcams.
The alleged sex trafficking victims claimed they would call them “slaves” and trick them into becoming webcam porn workers with promises of marriage.

Tate, who grew up in Luton, Bedfordshire, sent a groaning message to followers of his website, captioned: “My first email from prison”.
He said he would continue to send rambling emails, which the self-proclaimed misogynist called his “daily lessons from unjust imprisonment.”
Tate added: “You’re trying to break me. Thrown into a cell with no light.
“Roaches, 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’re trying to pour hate into my heart.”
He also repeatedly mentions the jailers, claiming that they “know I’m innocent” and are “just doing their job” since “they have families to support.”
His Twitter feed has continued to post, although it is unclear if any tweets came from him or any of his representatives.
And he recently said on the site that he’s now allowed to receive mail, encouraging his followers to write to him.
Tate also continued to whine on Twitter, with one post saying: “In the dark silence of solitary confinement there is almost no noise. Pray for me, I can hear you.’
He also claimed: “The great revolutionaries of every generation suffer from unfair imprisonment.”

Tate – along with his younger brother Tristan and two Romanian women, Luana Radu and Georgiana Naghel – were arrested last month and remanded in custody for 30 days. They deny any wrongdoing.
He is accused of recruiting dozens of women and forcing them to create online pornographic content on webcams.
Romanian prosecutors allege that Tate recruited her on social media platforms and then lured her to his Bucharest compound by falsely stating his love and intention to marry her.
Romanian authorities confiscated 15 luxury cars from Tate’s villa on the outskirts of the capital, as well as 14 designer watches and cash valued at an estimated €3.6 million (£3.17 million).
The British-American national currently has 4.7million followers on Twitter, having previously been banned from various social media platforms for expressing misogynist views and hate speech.
Tate was furious at the decision to extend his incarceration to February 27, telling his attorneys he was being “arrested on a crime of speech.”
Constantin Ioan Gliga, one of the defense attorneys, told Romania’s Gandul news agency: “We continue to claim that the Tate brothers are being arrested practically at this moment for a crime of opinion, for what they said at some point in the environment and not for that.” ‘what they actually did in their private lives.’
Gliga added that the decision was “unjustified and totally excessive”.
The judge’s ruling came after all four – Tate, Tristan, Radu and Naghel – lost an appeal earlier this month in a Bucharest court that upheld a judge’s Dec. 30 request to follow an earlier ruling, their detention to extend from 24 hours to 30 days.
