ANDREW Tate will be forced to remain in custody for another 30 days as a court has rejected his latest bid for freedom.
But the court rejected his appeal against a judge’s decision last week to extend his arrest a third time for 30 days, Ramona Bolla, a spokesperson for Romanias anti-organised crime agency DIICOT, said.
The brothers have already lost two previous appeals against prior 30-day extensions that have kept them behind bars while investigations continued.
Lawyers urged a court to grant them bail at a hearing last Monday, but judges ruled it was necessary to extend warrants for the brothers’ detention again.
They are understood to have claimed Tate would have fled to Dubai allegations if freed from custody.
Tate and his brother were arrested on December 29 as part of a probe into human trafficking, rape, and organised crime.
They are accused of recruiting women on social media platforms and persuading them to travel to their £600,000 villa on the outskirts of the country’s capital.
The brothers would allegedly falsely claim to be in love with the young women, before making them perform sexual acts on webcams.
