‘Dangerous’ Andrew Tate remains jailed in hellhole prison as court hears he ‘made women perform for 12 hours on sex cams’
ANDREW Tate made women perform on sex cams for 12 hours in his Romania hideout, new court documents claim today.
Judges were due to decide on Friday whether Andrew and his brother Tristan could be released – but the hearing has been postponed to February 1.
The brothers and their two suspected accomplices, Luana Radu and Georgina Naghel, are currently in prison in Romania as part of investigations into human trafficking, rape and organized crime.
The four have appealed a court’s decision to extend their sentence to February 27 – and a decision is now due next week after being postponed on Friday.
But new court documents have revealed the judge’s reasons for detaining the Tate brothers for another 30 days.
He quoted prosecutors as saying the women recruited for Andrew and Tristan’s alleged webcam business were forced to work 12 hours straight in front of live sex cams with only five-minute breaks.
He described the Tate brothers as “particularly dangerous”.
According to the court document, “The judge considers the defendants’ ability and commitment to exert sustained psychological control over victims, including through resorting to ongoing acts of violence.”
Prosecutors said the defendants coerced women “to conduct pornographic events in order to produce and distribute pornographic material by subjecting them to forced labour”.
The decision to extend the detention of the four suspects was based on “societal tension” and the “maintenance of public order,” according to court documents.
The judge also said prosecutors need more time to gather evidence in the case.
The Tate brothers’ first appeal, due to be released earlier this month, was denied.
Andrew and Tristan’s lawyer, Eugen Vidineac, had argued the brothers should be released as they both have children in Romania.
But the judge said the “possibility of them evading investigation cannot be ignored” – adding “they could leave Romania and settle in countries that don’t allow extradition”.
The couple were held in a Romanian “Hell Hole” prison cell.
The brothers and the two female suspects were arrested in Bucharest by Romanian organized crime prosecutors pending a criminal investigation.
Andrew and Tristan are accused of soliciting women on social media platforms and persuading them to travel to their £600,000 mansion.
The brothers would allegedly falsely claim to be in love with the young women before allowing them to engage in sexual acts in front of webcams.
It is claimed that they would develop relationships with the women before taking them to their compound and webcam studio in Romania.
According to Romanian investigators, women were forced to film porn videos on the premises and were placed under 24-hour house arrest.
The Romanian Organized Crime Unit claimed the women were being forced to put on webcam shows through “physical violence and mental coercion”.
As part of the wide-ranging investigation, police officers confiscated Andrew’s car collection – which police sources estimate is worth around £6million.
Prosecutors also said one of the brothers raped one of the victims in March last year, when the investigation began.
Andrew first rose to fame after a short-lived appearance on Big Brother.
He was kicked off the reality show after alleged footage of him hitting a woman surfaced online.
Andrew – aided by his brother – then spent years building a warped empire to promote toxic worldviews that have infected legions of fans through TikTok.
Disguised as lifestyle advice, much of the content is actually highly sexist and promotes violence against women.
His influence has spread worryingly among teenagers, with one UK MP saying he is “brainwashing” children.
