More from Eugen Vidineac, the attorney representing the Tate brothers:

Speaking about the claims that the men disparaged the women, Mr Vidineac said: “They are saying that these questions have been taken out of context, from some interviews they have given on social media.

“But they also say if we live our lives surrounded by over 300 people, women and men, we have many girlfriends and supporters all over the world, we go out in public all the time with our girlfriends and there are no complaints from our girlfriends .

“People have come forward and said they’ve been with one of the Tate brothers and he’s not the cruel, uneducated, abusive character he’s being portrayed as at this point.”

Mr Tate has come under a lot of criticism in recent weeks, mainly over his views on women, which have been branded misogynistic.

Andrew Tate’s online ‘character’ cannot be used as evidence, lawyer claims

Eugen Vidineac, who represents Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan, told the Romanian online newspaper a thought that a far-right influencer’s online persona cannot be used against him in court.

The lawyer said he believed the persona someone like Mr Tate presented on social media could not be used as evidence in a criminal trial as it might not reflect who they were in real life.

Speaking about the role of social media in the case, Mr Vidineac said: “In the case of the Tate brothers, I don’t know what their intention was to promote themselves on social media, but I’m sitting here wondering if that could be the intention of social media serve as evidence in a criminal prosecution case?’

Romania’s anti-organized crime agency Diicot said two British nationals and two Romanians were suspected of being part of a criminal group focused on human trafficking on 29 December.

Their appeals will be heard against a judge’s decision to extend their detention orders from 24 hours to 30 days, Dicot added.

Here’s How To Beat Toxic Men Like Andrew Tate | Comment

Sufyan Ahmeda look at the toxic culture behind the prison powerhouse: News of Andrew Tate’s arrest was greeted with relief by many who had hoped it would end his prominence. However, in my opinion (and experience) the damage is done. Tate’s views, reinforced by social media, have already led to the manipulation of huge numbers of young men of my generation, and without urgent intervention we may end up with a lost generation of young men. Let me tell you what I saw.

There’s no denying the sheer range achieved by Tate. He was the most searched person on Google in the summer of 2022. Videos with his hashtag have amassed 13 billion views on TikTok. His mentoring scheme currently has 160,000 paying subscribers.

Once you dig into what Tate preaches to the masses, his social media reach is terrifying. Tate made comments such as “women bear some responsibility for rape”; compares women to dogs and proudly admitted in a video with a fellow YouTuber that he’s an “absolute misogynist,” saying he’s actually a “realist” and “when you’re a realist, you’re a sexist.” The increase in these views should horrify everyone.
