Andrew Tate posts cryptic message after being released from prison
| Last updated
Andrew Tate has posted a cryptic message to social media after he was released from prison in Romania and placed under house arrest as the investigation into him and his brother continues.
Tate and his brother Tristan had been held in custody since 29 December as part of an investigation into human trafficking, with Romanian authorities raiding their home.
Normally those placed into custody in Romania can be held for a period of 30 days, though this period can be extended and indeed it was multiple times for the Tate brothers.
They made repeated appeals against the extension of their time in custody which had appeared to be unsuccessful as on 29 March their time in custody was extended for another 30 days.
However, the Court of Appeal in Bucharest later ruled that they could be released from custody and remain under house arrest with the Tate brothers and associates Georgiana Naghel and Luana Radu ordered to stay in their homes unless granted specific permission to leave.
Since being placed under house arrest Tate has released a statement claiming that 'the fire of truth will eventually destroy all lies'.
The controversial influencer, known for his misogynistic views and previous claims that women should 'bear responsibility' for being raped, also claimed that he did 7,417 push ups while in prison.
Meanwhile, he has also posted a video of himself pacing around his house smoking a cigar while insisting that 'we must defeat Shaytan', quite why or how we're supposed to do this went unspecified.
The cryptic content has continued as the controversial influencer has posted yet more strange stuff onto his social media, quote tweeting a post he made on 28 March about dreaming of freedom with the caption: "It's tomorrow."
Since he is already out of his prison cell quite what this is supposed to mean remains something of a mystery, even to the horde of Twitter Blue subscribers who seem to enjoy his posts.
According to prosecutors, Tate and his brother are part of an organised crime ring which trafficked at least six women who claim to have been subjected to 'acts of physical violence and mental coercion', as well as being sexually exploited by members of the group.
After Tate was arrested in December the Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT) said they had identified six victims who had been lured with claims of love before being coerced into pornographic acts for the financial gain of the crime group.
Tate denies the allegations made against him, claiming that the Romanian prosecutors have no evidence and that their case is a 'political' conspiracy conjured up to silence him.
