Is Andrew Tate released from Romanian jail?: Details inside

Disgraced influencer Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan Tate have been released from Romanian jail and placed under house arrest, after a successful appeal against their detention in December.

Along with the Tate brothers, two associates, Georgiana Naghel and Luana Radu, are also freed.

All have been ordered to stay in the house they live in and not to go out without legal authorization.

The brothers were arrested in December on allegations of rape, human trafficking and forming an organized crime group.

They were tried for their alleged wrongdoing, which they denied.

Lawyers for Mr Tate have argued that keeping the influencer in protective custody is unnecessarily harsh, when other legal options such as house arrest are available.

Leaked court documents obtained by the BBC have highlighted evidence from alleged victims claiming they were forced to earn €10,000 (£8,800) a month on social media platforms, under the alleged threat of physical violence .

The documents also described the debts being used as “a form of psychological coercion”.

Since investigations began in April 2022, six women have been identified by prosecutors as victims.

However, no charges have yet been proven against the brothers or the two Romanian associates who were arrested with them.

The kickboxing brothers were arrested in December 2022 and have been kept in custody in Bucharest despite multiple appeals against their detention.

In 2016, Mr Tate, a former kickboxer, was dropped from the British TV show Big brother on a video that appeared to show him attacking a woman.
