Recently, DIICOT, the Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism raided the duo’s luxury house in Pipera, located near Bucharest. And soon after, the Tate brothers were arrested along with two other individuals.
The news of Andrew and Tristan Tate’s arrest spread like a wildfire on the internet. The videos of the brothers being arrested by Romanian authorities went viral on social media in the blink of an eye.
Now that, DIICOT is involved in the case, it seems like severe charges have been posed against Andrew and his brother Tristan. The Tate brothers have been accused of rape, human trafficking, and setting up an organized criminal group.
Why have Andrew and Tristan Tate been arrested?
According to a press release issued by DIICOT, the four people who have been arrested by the police authorities allegedly trafficked humans within the national borders of Romania. The agency has also dropped a video of the raid that took place at Andrew Tate’s house.
The press release also stated that the group recruited” British citizens and decoyed them into the country by making them believe that they would tie the knot or be involved in relationships.
Although, the women were allegedly pressurized both physically as well as mentally, to create pornographic material to be sold online through various platforms. The DIICOT also went on to say that one of the victims was allegedly coerced by one of the perpetrators into having sexual relations against their will, amounting to allegations of rape.
A total of 6 victims who have been identified were transported and exploited by the group since the year 2021 via a method of human trafficking called ‘Loverboy.’
Is Greta Thunberg connected to Tristan and Andrew Tate’s arrest?
Soon after, many social media users established a connection of Andrew and Tristan’s arrest to Greta Thunberg. Alejandra Caraballo, a Civil Rights Attorney well known for his activism took to his Twitter and posted a news story about the Tate brothers’ arrest and stated that their recent tirade against Greta may have led the Romanian authorities to him.
Andrew has been in a feud with Greta over the last couple of days. At first, he clapped back at the climate activist by talking about the emissions from many of his supercars. Her witty reply shut down the social media personality in an epic way.
Romanian authorities needed proof that Andrew Tate was in the country so they reportedly used his social media posts. His ridiculous video yesterday featured a pizza from a Romanian pizza chain, Jerry's Pizza, confirming he was in the country.
