Andrew and Tristan Tate Facing ‘21 Accusations of Rape & Sexual Assault in UK’

Andrew and Tristan Tate are facing 21 complaints of rape and sexual assault in the UK, judicial sources say.

The controversial brothers are due to be extradited to Britain after being arrested as part of the UK’s “Operation Moonwalk” investigation.

Andrew, 37 and Tristan, 35, already face charges of human trafficking, rape and organised crime and are due to stand trial in Romania.

But on Monday night, the pair were also arrested on a new UK warrant.

Dozens of Romanian police stormed their villa outside of Bucharest and the pair were hauled back to court yesterday.

Judicial sources told Romanian outlet Gandul that 21 complaints of rape and sexual assault had been filed against the brothers in the UK.

The insider claimed some of the victims were drugged and subjected to sexual assault between 2012 and 2015.

Both brothers could face life sentences, according to the source.

The Tates were also today given a 60-day extension to the “judicial control” measures – which restrict their movements and ban them from leaving Romania.

Four women in the UK threatened Tate with a lawsuit last June, accusing him of “violent rapes, serious physical assault, and controlling and coercive behaviour”.

But those women have confirmed this week’s arrest on a UK warrant is over separate complaints.

They said: “We understand that this extradition request was made because of criminal complaints of sexual assault made by other women, and not because of the complaints were made almost a decade ago.”

Bedfordshire Police confirmed to The Sun they were working with Romanian authorities on their continued probe and once proceedings end, the brothers can be extradited to the UK.

Hours after their court appearance, the force put out a statement confirming the arrests as part of “Operation Moonwalk”.

A spokesman added: “We understand this is a distressing subject, and people may be impacted by what they are seeing in the news.

“Bedfordshire Police takes all reports of sexual offences seriously, and further support is available via our website or by calling 101.

“Anyone with information about this specific investigation should call 101, and quote Operation Moonwalk.”

The brothers were detained for 24 hours pending a ruling on the British arrest warrant.

They “categorically reject” all new charges – and have since been released from custody.

Eugen Vidineac, a lawyer representing the Tates, said: “This ruling provides an opportunity for the brothers to participate fully in their defence and for the legal process to proceed in a transparent manner.”

He also denied any allegations that Andrew had been planning to flee the country.

Andrew and Tristan were charged by police in June as part of an ongoing sex trafficking investigation in Romania.

They have been accused of recruiting women on social media platforms and getting them to visit their villa on the outskirts of Bucharest.

Both men are alleged to have pretended to fall in love with the women before getting them to work for their business and making them perform sexual acts on webcams.

Andrew and Tristan have denied the allegations.

    They will face a court of their peers unless the families get to them first, saving tax dollars.

    Please explain why I should care about the Tates.

      Andrew Tate is an influencer who was amassing a large following of young men, largely in America and the UK (he’s American born but raised in the UK), and educating them on what it means to be a man. The Lefties like to claim it’s all about toxic masculinity, and someone wants him shut down, hence this bogus crime. He has said controversial things (women belong in the home), but he’s tried to wake up white boys to the pansy push that’s been going on for a few decades now.

    It seems strange that women in multiple countries should accept them of the sane crimes. Are they Ll lying? Makes no sense.

    • nana says:

      Ive never heard of them, but either they are idiots who have been caught, or someone is trying to shut them down/jail them/discredit them, for other reasons.

    Ah, youth. Someone at Truth Press knocked out this article wholly unaware that a news story is required to tell readers who Andrew and Tristan Tate are. It takes one sentence (psst, you put it in the lead, you know, kickboxer, Internet influencer, brother, etc.). I’m going to guess that the writer lives in a world where everyone knows who these guys are. No, that would be around 5% of the US population. Terrible news reporting. Note I can’t use the term “journalism.”
