Controversial Internet personality Andrew Tate said there was “no justice” in Romania in his first public appearance since his arrest at the end of December.
On December 29, Romanian authorities raided the territory of Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan, as they and two women were charged with alleged human trafficking and organized crime.
The brothers will remain in custody until February 27, and their assets will also be confiscated as part of the DIICOT investigation. Despite the detention, they kept in touch with fans, and they were also allowed visits with family members. However, Adin Ross is not allowed to visit him, despite the fact that Tate has put him on the list of people he would like to see.
Andrew sent e-mails to fans detailing the conditions of his detention, and his Twitter account also remained active. Nevertheless, the former kickboxer appeared in public for the first time after his arrest and spoke to journalists.

The brothers were summoned for further questioning on January 25 by the Prosecutor’s Office for Combating Organized Crime, and they had the opportunity to talk to journalists who were waiting for them outside while they were being taken.
“They know we didn’t do anything wrong,” Andrew said as he walked from the police van to the building. “The case is completely empty. Of course, this is unfair, unfortunately, there is no justice in Romania.”
His brother Tristan repeated this, saying there was “no evidence against him” and that the authorities were “planning to steal my cars and steal my money.”
Romanian authorities can detain suspects such as Tate for up to 180 days at the request of the prosecutor’s office.
It is still unknown what will happen next during the trial, and whether they will still appear in public. Although they are steadfast in their belief that there is no case against them.
