This is the Tate brothers' third extension.

A Romanian court has ruled to extend Andrew Tate's hold for another 30 days, as reported on Tuesday (February 21st). The social media influencer, largely known for his controversial viewpoints, initially was detained following human trafficking allegations. The ongoing investigation into the suspicions of organized crime has warranted three 30-day extensions since Andrew's initial arrest on December 29th, according to AP News. Accompanying the 36-year-old is his brother, Tristan. The duo was initially joined in custody by two Romanian women who will now be moved to house arrest.

The legal team representing the Tate brothers had appealed a prior extension ruling on February 1st, which they ultimately lost. Should the defendants be faced with another extension next month, the defense team is ready to challenge it, the outlet reports. Eugene Vidineac, one of the Tates' lawyers, described how his team “effectively paralyzed the evidence,” resulting in insufficient reasons for the brothers to remain in custody.

Andrew, the older sibling of the two, boasts over five million followers on his social media pages. The influencer still has access to his accounts while behind bars and took to Twitter on February 14th to reflect on his situation: ”there are two possible futures of the universe. One, they kill me. Two, I emerge as one of the most respected and influential men on the planet galvanized by false persecution. I ask my enemies to make a choice. I will stay awake tonight prepared for mortal combat. Send your best." Often referred to as misogynistic and hateful, the former kickboxing champion gained recognition for broadcasting his viewpoints online. Having resided in Romania since 2017, Tate maintains his opinion that his arrest was a premeditated political attack by the Romanian government.

According to Romania's anti-organized crime agency, DIICOT, the human-trafficking case's six alleged victims were revealed to have experienced mental and physical abuse from their captors. Additionally, the suspects forced the victims to film pornographic materials for their own financial gain. While the case has not led to any formal charges yet, it looks like the Tate brothers won't be getting off easily any time soon.
