It is blow after blow for controversial content creator Andrew Tate.
A Romanian court has rejected his appeal of his 30-day detention on charges of human trafficking, organized crime and rape.
The judge maintained that the former kick-boxer/ professed misogynist must remain in custody while investigations surrounding his human trafficking, rape, and forming an organized crime ring continues.
Tate was arrested back in December 29th and charged with the above charges. His younger brother Tristan, and two Romanian female suspects were also arrested and charged with being Tate's partners in the human trafficking and crime ring charges.
After their arrests, police said they had identified six people who were allegedly "sexually exploited by what it called an organized criminal group".
Police alleged the victims were "recruited" by the British citizens, who they said misrepresented their intention to enter into a relationship with the victims which it called "the lover boy method".
They were later forced to perform in pornographic content under threat of violence, a statement alleged.
The two have however maintained that they're innocent. Alongside their not guilty stance, they had launched an appeal against the seizure of their belongings and prolongation of their arrest warrants.
“I am very disappointed... the measure seems excessive to me,” the brothers’ lawyer, Eugen Vidineac, told local media after the ruling.
A few days ago Romanian authorities seized about 15 of the brother's luxury cars and more than 10 properties or plots of land.
Two weeks before the arrest the former kick-boxer had flaunted his fleet online as he taunted Swedish climate change activist Greta Thunberg.
Some of the cars confiscated according to Romanian outlet Spy News include the $2.9 million Buggati Chiron that he used to taunt 20-year-old Swedish climate change activist Greta Thunberg, a Rolls Royce, two Ferraris, Aston Martin Vanquish S Ultimate, and a Porsche.
