Andrew Tate and brother Tristan to remain in jail for another 30 days
| Last updated
Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan are set to remain in jail for another 30 days after having their latest appeal rejected.
The controversial pair have been imprisoned in Romania since 29 December on the suspicion of human trafficking, rape, and forming an organised crime group.
Despite appeals to be kept under house arrest, Tate remains behind bars as as prosecutors prepare their case against him.
A representative for the divisive influencer told the MailOnline that the brothers and fellow suspects Luana Radu and Georgiana Naghel are to be kept locked up until at least 21 April.
In court documents seen by the outlet, the Bucharest judge granted the prosecutors' request and decided against allowing the Tates and their accomplices to get out on bail due to the 'particular dangerousness of the defendants'.
The report also cited their ability to identify victims 'with an increased vulnerability, in search of better life opportunities.'
There's yet to be a date set for trial, but prosecutors are only able to request the four remain in detention for 180 days, meaning they can only stay locked up until 27 June.
Once again, the former kickboxer and Big Brother contestant shared a bizarre tweet following the news.
In similar vein to his 'mortal combat' messages, he tweeted from his cell: "My whole life has been war. That is the difference between me and everyone else.
"I have knife scars. I have had 87 professional fights. Now I am in a Romanian Jail.
"I succeed and achieve regardless. And that is why when I speak, people listen. Heroes are built in War."
The Tate brothers were initially arrested in December following a five-hour raid at their Pipera home, at the northern edge of Bucharest.
Although the team at the Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT) - which was in charge of the sting operation - were ready to pounce, they were yet to confirm their location.
But this all changed thanks to a rather unlikely war of words between Andrew Tate and Greta Thunberg.
After receiving a ruthless roast from the climate change activist, the 36-year-old posted a cringe-worthy video in which he suggested he wouldn't recycle his pizza boxes.
And since the pizza boxes were from a Romanian restaurant, he accidentally revealed his location to the DIICOT.
Both Andrew and Tristan have denied the accusations against them, with lawyer Eugen Vidineac previously claiming there is 'no evidence' to support the claims.
However, Romania's anti-organised crime agency DIICOT said after the arrests that it had identified six victims who were allegedly subjected to 'acts of physical violence and mental coercion' and sexual exploitation.
