The suspect was present today at the prosecutors’ offices for a second day of forensic examinations,” said Simona Neacsu, spokeswoman for Romania’s Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism.
Andrew Tate, an internet personality with immense influence in Romania, is currently detained on suspicion of organized crime and human trafficking. On Thursday he appeared at the prosecutor’s office to undergo a second day of forensic device searches. This comes after several digital devices were confiscated from him as part of the investigation into his alleged activities.
Simona Neacsu, spokesperson for Romania’s Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT), confirmed that Tate was present during these proceedings: “The suspect was present today at the prosecutors’ offices for a second day of forensic examination.”
Tate has been under investigation since last month when authorities raided his home in Bucharest following allegations that he had committed various criminal offenses including fraud and money laundering – all charges which he has denied vehemently claiming they are false accusations intended to damage his reputation as well as business interests overseas.
The outcome remains uncertain but it appears likely that Andrew Tate will remain in custody until further notice while investigators continue their investigations into this case involving serious crimes against humanity
